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 10:00.
You may only request a home visit if you are housebound or are too ill to visit the practice. You will only have a home visit you at home if your GP thinks your medical condition requires it and will also decide how urgently a visit is needed. It may also be decided that your visit can be carried out by our GP outreach nurse and not a GP. GP Outreach nurses are qualified to diagnose and prescribe medicines. Please bear this in mind and be prepared to provide suitable details to enable the doctor to schedule house calls
You can also 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.
