Home Visits

Wherever possible you should try to telephone the surgery before 10:30 if you require a home visit.

Rivergreen Medical CentreA doctor or nurse may phone you back as it may be that your problem can be dealt with by telephone advice, or that it would be more appropriate to send a nurse, or indeed arrange a hospital attendance.

House visits are normally only carried out for the following groups of patients:

    • the terminally ill.

    • The truly housebound patients, for which travel to premises by car would cause deterioration in their medical condition.

Please remember that several patients can be seen in the practice in the time that it takes to make one home visit. There are also better facilities for examining and treating patients at the Medical Centre.
