Home Visits

If you are too ill to come to surgery please telephone 020 8542 2827 between 08:30 and 10:00.

If you are seeking a home visit from your GP please be aware of the following:

  • Home visits are very time consuming.
  • In the time it takes to visit one patient at your home, your GP can see several patients at the surgery.
  • Home visits restrict the range of examinations that can be carried out by the GP.

A GP home visit is recommended as the best way of giving medical opinion in cases involving: the terminally ill; patients dying of cancer; the truly housebound for whom travel to the surgery would cause deterioration in their medical condition.
