Home visit requests

The vast majority of our appointments occur at one our surgery in Iffley. We will always endeavour to fit patients in at a time and location suitable to their circumstances.

Occasionally it may be necessary for a home visit to occur where a person is bedbound or very frail and elderly. Please be aware that capacity for home visiting is very limited and we cannot visit for reasons other than this.

Such requests should be made, wherever reasonably possible, before 11am.

Requests for home visits received after 11am should only be for new, urgent problems which cannot wait until the following morning.

The final decision on whether a home visit is required may be taken following discussion with a doctor, who will usually call you back.

If you have a serious emergency, for example if you think you are having a heart attack or stroke, call 999.
