We have far better facilities for examination and treatment in the surgery compared to home. We look after over 10,000 patients who live across the whole of Luton and time – a scarce medical resource – spent travelling around in a car is very wasteful.
For both these reasons, we expect patients to come to the surgery in almost all cases. Please do not ask for a visit unless the patient is genuinely too unwell to come to the surgery.
If a home visit is unavoidable please telephone the surgery as early as possible so the doctors can plan their rounds.
