Home Visits

We would always request that, apart from the genuinely housebound, all other patients try to attend the Surgery rather than request a home visit because of the extra time home visiting takes.  On average six patients can be seen in surgery in the time it takes to do one house call. In addition, any necessary examination may be limited at home due to lack of portable equipment such as an ECG machine

We are only obliged to visit at home on the grounds of clinical need and not because of difficulties with transport.  Please note that the doctor may telephone you to discuss your problem, rather than visit you, if this is medically appropriate.

Patients are requested to telephone the surgery before 10.30am on the day a home visit is required.  Home visits are usually dealt with after the morning surgery is finished and before the afternoon surgery begins. If a visit request is more urgent than this the Doctor will deal with it appropriately.

The out of hour’s medical service will continue to look after all your urgent problems between 6.30pm and 8.00am each weekday, all weekend and Bank & Public Holidays.

The Out of Hours telephone number for patients in North Somerset is (Freephone) 111
