Home Visits

House bound patients and those too ill to attend the Practice may request a home visit by phoning 0191 4542211.

Where the visit is routine, we ask that the patient or their carer contact the practice before 11 a.m.

If the visit is urgent please contact the practice as soon as you are able. If you can do this before 11 a.m. it means there is less disruption to booked patients.

The receptionist will ask for brief details of the problem and up to date contact details, in order to pass this information onto the duty doctor. The duty doctor will then ring you back to request further information in order that they may judge the urgency of the visit, and which team is the most appropriate to assess you at your home.

Please attend surgery if at all possible.
