Home Visits

All requests to be made on 0141 956 4334

 

If you require a house visit please call our dedicated line on 0141 956 4334. It is helpful if you contact the surgery before 10 am in order that the doctor can prioritise their list.

 

Visits are only for those who, in the doctor’s opinion, are too ill to be brought to the surgery. Lack of transport is not a reason for requesting a house visit. Please bear in mind that the average house visit, because of the time spent by the doctor travelling, takes as long as three consultations in the surgery. This affects the service which we can offer to other patients. Facilities at the surgery, including equipment for examination, are superior to those available in the doctor’s case.

 

The district nurses have a responsibility for, amongst others, the housebound elderly who require treatment and they should often be your first port of call. They can carry out many activities including changing catheters, blood tests, care of wounds etc.

 

We have ramp access at the front of the building and a side entrance offering wheelchair access and disabled toilet facilities.
