Please telephone Bower Mount Medical Practice before 10.30am if you are requesting a home visit. Patients are usually telephoned by their doctor prior to the visit to make an assessment as to the suitability and requirements during their visit.
Home visits are only for housebound patients who are too ill or frail to attend the surgery. (Transport responsibility remains with the patient).
REASONS FOR A HOME VISIT
Would come to serious harm if moved
No transport or money
Children, young people and anyone who is mobile
Social reasons or for convenience
THE SMALL PRINT:

If you think you qualify for a home visit, please ring before 10.30am
