Here at Linbury Doctors, we offer a flexible home visiting service to our members. As one of the many benefits of being a member, a private GP home visit allows us to spend time getting to know you and your family. In line with Government guidelines, we ensure that all Covid precautions are in place when we visit you.
In this blog post, we highlight what you can expect from a home visit from your private doctor, including how to contact your dedicated GP, when to make your appointment and how long appointment times are. If you’d like to find out more about becoming a member, contact us or visit our membership page.
1. We will visit at a time that suits you
As a member of Linbury Doctors, you will have access to your own dedicated private GP who you will be able to contact directly. When you’d like to book an appointment, just text, email or call your doctor; they will organise to see you at a time that suits you. We can also see you at your workplace and, with out-of-hours appointments available, you can get on with your day without disruption.
At your private GP home visit, we can discuss the problem, carry out examinations and prescribe any necessary medication from the comfort of your own home. If an urgent appointment is needed, we will try to get to you within the hour.
2. You can talk about as many issues as you like
There’s no need to book separate appointments for different issues. Your private GP is with you as long as you need them, so you can get everything off your chest and discuss as many things as you’d like to. If you have a family membership, we can also see your children at the same time, if necessary.
Here at Linbury Doctors, caring for the whole family holistically is what we do. We spend time getting to know you so that we can provide a highly individualised, bespoke service.
3. A private GP home visit has no time restrictions
One of the things we love most here at Linbury is that we never have to look at our watch during appointments. As members, you can have your private GP as long as you need them. You will never feel rushed and we will ensure everything is covered off before we leave you.
4. Nothing is ever too ‘small’ or too ‘silly’
We often hear from patients that they don’t want to ‘bother’ their doctor with ‘small’ issues. Let us be the judge of that! We always have time for you; no problem is ever too ‘small’ or too ‘silly’. We’d much rather our patients give us a text or call if something is bothering them, and we will pop by and have a chat about it. Whether it’s something that just needs monitoring or whether further action is needed, it’s always best to let your private GP know.
5. Get your private prescription on the same day
We prescribe medication at your private GP home visit and, in most cases, you can get it on the same day. Plus, if blood or urine tests are needed, you can get the results the very next day; there’s no more waiting around!
