Whilst we would normally 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 - especially in Covid times. In this respect, if you do need a home visit, you can help us by calling reception before 10:00, we may ask a GP / ANP to contact you by telephone in the first instance.
You may only request a home visit if you are housebound. 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
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.
