If possible please try to telephone reception before 10:00am if you require a home visit.
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. The GP will always call you before doing the home visit to assess your needs. If your GP is unavailable the request will be given to the duty doctor.
Please remember that on average it takes four times as long to see a patient at home as at the Surgery.
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.
