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 as early in the day as possible, preferably before 10:00, this will enable the Doctors to plan their work.
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 in mind that we are a GP Practice and home visits are usually allocated to the end of the clinician's morning and afternoon surgery.
Therefore, if you feel you have a life threatening emergency that requires immediate medical attention, please call 999.
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.
