Home Visits

If possible please try to telephone reception before 10:30 if you require a home visit. The receptionist will need brief details of the problem in order for the doctors to arrange their visits in order of priority. Please bear in mind that a home visit may not necessarily be made by your usual doctor.

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.
