Home Visits

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 10:30am.

You may only request a home visit if you are housebound or are too ill to visit the practice.

A 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.

Please note if you are not staying in your own home and request a visit to a residence that is outside of our practice area then our GP's will not be able to visit you.  

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.
