Home Visits

There are a few housebound patients who cannot get to the surgery and for whom we can offer home consultations.

If you request a home visit a doctor will telephone you to assess your need and to determine whether your request can possibly be dealt with in another way.

Where possible we prefer to see our patients at the surgery as consultations at the surgery are more effective. Visits are time consuming, prevent a doctor being available for emergencies and the doctor may be unable to examine the patient properly at home.

Visits are difficult to fit in during a doctors busy working day so please, if you think a visit is necessary, please telephone Bodmin on 01208 269988 as early as possible, preferably before 10:00. A doctor will phone you back to discuss your request.
