Home Visits

If possible please try to telephone reception as soon as possible, preferably between 08:00 and 11:00, if you require a home visit.

After this time, we do have our duty doctor who may be able to visit if the situation warrants it. Please be advised that the doctor will always call before visiting.

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.

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.
