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 the secretaries.
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
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.
UPDATE TO HOME VISITING
Please note from the 1st of April 2019 home visit requests will need to be booked before 12.30pm for urgent requests.
Any routine pre-booked visits can be added throughout the day but all on the day urgent requests must be requested before 12:30pm.
If an urgent visit is requested after this time it may be put for the next working day as per the GP Partners
If you require any further information please do not hesitate to contact the surgery.
