Several patients can be seen at the surgery in the time that it takes to do one home visit. Home visits are only available for people unable for medical reasons to attend the surgery.
How To Request A Home Visit
Please telephone 01929 463444 before 10.30am if a visit is required that day. We only accept emergency calls after that time. Please give as much information as possible to enable the doctor to allocate priority to house calls. Our reception staff never refuse requests for home visits but always will ask you for details to help the doctors plan their rounds and to enable a doctor to contact you by telephone if appropriate. It is not possible to guarantee which doctor will visit you.
Even in rural areas, home visits are not available to assist with problems of transport to the surgery, except at the discretion of the doctor concerned. If you phone by 10.30 a.m. we will do our best, so long as we have time available.
Phone Bindon Abbey (01929) 463444 at any time. If the problem is an emergency, needing a doctor straight away, please make this completely clear. In some circumstances (collapse, unconsciousness, severe bleeding) you should phone the Ambulance Service first (999).
