Our doctors typically see four patients in the practice in the time it takes to do a single home visit. For this reason we ask patients to come to the practice where possible. However, we can visit you at home if your condition means you cannot attend the surgery. Please ring before 10:30 to arrange a visit and let us know if your condition is urgent.
You may only request a home visit if you are housebound or are too ill to visit the practice. Your GP will only visit you at home if they think that your medical condition requires it and will also decide how urgently a visit is needed. Please bear this in mind and be prepared to provide suitable details to enable the doctor to schedule house calls
You can also be visited at home by a community nurse if you are referred by your GP. You should also be visited at home by a health visitor if you have recently had a baby or if you are newly registered with a GP and have a child under five years.
