Home visits are for patients who are too ill or frail to attend surgeries. Please try to request home visits by 10.30am.
Be prepared to give brief details of the problem so we can assess the urgency of the visit. It is appreciated if patients can attend surgery if at all possible. This is usually quicker for the patient and makes best use of the doctor's time.
It will not always be possible to see the doctor of your choice if you request a home visit. If the patient needs to be seen urgently please let the receptionist know.
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.
