Home visits

Please help us to help you and our other patients. Our doctors are able to see several patients in the surgery in the time it takes to do a single home visit. For this reason, we ask our patients to come to the surgery where required, and we also offer video and telephone consultations where appropriate. Find our more about home visits.


How you can help us

Please be on time for your appointment, this helps us to run on schedule and to give you the maximum amount of time available. Importantly, please let us know as soon as possible if you no longer require your appointment via the Dr. iQ app, text reply to your appointment reminder or by calling us. We can then offer the appointment to someone else. Please see our policy regarding missed appointments.
