How to Request a Home Visit




Requests for home visits may be made by calling the surgery reception on 01626 890368 (Starcross) or 01392 833230 (Exminster), preferably before 11am.

In general, we ask that patients only request a home visit if they are genuinely housebound and too unwell to come to the surgery. If so, you will usually be visited by your doctor after morning surgery.

The computerised records and some pieces of medical equipment which are so helpful in modern general practice are only available at the surgery. In addition, your doctor can usually see several patients at the surgery in the time that it takes to make a single housecall.
