Home Visits

Requests for home visits should be made when the patient is too ill to attend the surgery. Every effort should be made to attend the Medical Centre where you will be seen more quickly than waiting for a home visit.

The home visits by the doctor are for medical reasons only, for patients who are terminally ill or truly bed-bound patients for whom travel to our Centre would cause deterioration in their condition.

If you do need a home visit, try to phone before 10.30am. You should tell the Receptionist what the problem is so that we can assess how urgent the visit is. The triage Doctor will want to speak to you to decide what is the best option - seeing the Nurse, seeing the Doctor, or going to hospital.

If you do require a house call in normal surgery hours please phone Killay Surgery on 201181 between 9.00 and 10.30am Monday to Friday.
