Home visits specification

If you need a home visit you should contact us before 10am if at all possible. Home visits are for housebound patients only. The clinician will triage the visit request to see whether it is required. A clinician can see six patients in the time it takes for one home visit so these are for patients who never leave the house or cannot leave due to the severity of their illness. Please note that not having access to transport does not mean you require a home visit. It is always safer to be seen in the surgery where the clinicians have access to your medical record and any equipment they need to examine you.

Patient update from Tudor Lodge Surgery:

Like other GP practices, we are affected by the current national shortage of blood tubes.

In order to continue blood tests for people with the greatest clinical need, we are delaying routine and non-urgent blood tests in line with national guidance.

If you have an appointment booked in the next few weeks the reception team will be in touch via phone or text. Your appointment will be rescheduled once the situation is resolved.

We will be providing regular updates on our website, which we encourage you to check for the latest info.

Please don’t contact us – we will be in touch with you when appointments can be rescheduled. Thank you for your patience and cooperation.
