Home visits



To make sure we use our time effectively and efficiently, we limit home visits to those who really need them.  Whilst it’s nice to have a doctor visit you at home, and we find them very useful, they take up a lot of time.  


Home visits are not a patient right and are available only at the discretion of our doctors who will need to assess your condition over the telephone before a visit is granted.


To be eligible for a home visit from our team at The Oakwood Surgery, you need to live within our practice boundary (i.e. not registered under the out of area scheme) and be housebound.


We are not equipped, staffed or trained to provide an emergency service.  If your problem is an emergency, please dial 999.
