Home visits are for patients who are too ill or frail to attend the surgery. It is inappropriate to request a house call because of lack of transport or other non medical social factors.
Please try to request home visits by 10am. This allows the doctors to plan their calls efficiently. Urgent home visits be seen as soon as possible.
Please let the receptionist know if you feel your condition is urgent.
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.
