Home visits

If you are housebound or too ill to come to the surgery, the doctor will visit you in your home.

If possible, try to ring the surgery BEFORE 10.00am so that the doctors can plan their visits after morning surgery.

Give your name, address, telephone number and the reason for the visit when you ring. Please provide as much information as possible, to allow the doctors to prioritise their visits. You may be telephoned by a doctor prior to a visit to asses it’s urgency. Please help us by only asking for a home visit when it is really necessary.

When the surgery is closed, SELDOC, a co-operative of local GP’s, including those from this practice, provide an emergency service. This means that you will not necessarily be visited by a doctor from this practice and you may be asked, if you are well enough to travel, to go to a local base to be seen. Our local base is at Dulwich Hospital. 020 8693 9066.
