Home Visits

Doctor's bagIf possible please try to telephone reception before 10:30 if you require a home visit.

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.

You can 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.

Please be prepared to tell our receptionist about your condition so doctors can visit the most urgent cases first.  The Duty doctor may wish to speak with you on the telephone to see if it would be better for you to come to the surgery to be seen immediately.  Home visits are normally made in the afternoon, after morning surgery.

Please ensure you give our receptionist your correct address and contact phone number.  This is particularly important if you are staying with relatives
