Home visits are only for those patients whose illness is such that they cannot possibly come to the surgery. Please see the Leicestershire Local Medical Committee’s guidance on our website that defines appropriate/inappropriate requests. Should a house call be required, please contact the surgery before 10.00 a.m. and request the visit. The doctor will use his/her discretion as to when he/she will call depending on the workload on that day. In the case of an urgent house call, telephone the surgery and explain the situation to the receptionist who will contact the doctor immediately.
