Patients are requested to telephone before 10:30 if a visit is required that day. Medically urgent visits only will be arranged after that time. Please give the receptionist as much information as possible to enable the doctor to allocate priority to house calls.
Please remember that several patients can be seen at the surgery in the time it takes to do a home visit, and that we have better facilities at the surgery to assess your problem.
Home visits are for people who are truly housebound or whose medical condition means they are too ill to travel.
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.
