Whilst we encourage our patients to come to the surgery, where we have the proper equipment and facilities available, we do appreciate this is not always possible. In this respect, if you do need a home visit, you can help us by calling reception before 10:00.
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.
If you have recently been discharged from Hospital following an operation and feel you are required a home visit, please do not assume your GP knows you are home and needing a review. Contact reception to organise a visit.
You can also be visited at home by a community nurse if you are referred by your GP. You might also be visited at home by a health visitor if you have recently had a baby.
