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 10:30.
You may only request a home visit if you are truely housebound with your condition. 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. Drs fit house calls around busy clinics and whilst this is a valuable service it is also an inefficient way for Drs to work. A house call may stop a Dr seeing 4 patients in the surgery. So please make arrangements to get to the surgery if at all possible.
You can also be visited at home by a community nurse if you are referred by your GP.
