Home Visits

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

Bedbound

Terminally ill

Would come to serious harm if moved

UNSUITABLE

No transport or money

Children, young people and anyone who is mobile

Social reasons or for convenience

THE SMALL PRINT:

Patients do not have an automatic right to a home visit

Under their terms of working, doctors are required to consider home visits for medical reasons only

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

All visit requests will be medically assessed to check if appropriate

Other help more appropriate
