Home visits are only available for the housebound and seriously ill. We expect children to be brought to the surgery. Requests should be made before 10am and those non-urgent ones received later than this will be put forward to the next day.
Please give the receptionists as much information as possible to help the doctor prioritise the call.
We can see far more patients in surgery than by doing house calls and you will usually be seen more quickly.
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.
