Requests for home visits for patients who are not well enough to come to the surgery must be made before 11:00. The details of your request will be passed on to the doctor who may telephone you to discuss your problem. Any requests for home visits after 11:00 will be classed as an emergency and will be dealt with by the doctor on call.
Please do not request a home visit simply because you do not have transport to the surgery
Home visits are expensive and time-consuming and should only be for patients who are genuinely house-bound or too ill to come to the surgery. If you have transport problems, please call reception for advice.
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.
