Home Visits

If possible please try to telephone before 10:30. A doctor or nurse will phone you back, as it may be that your problem can be dealt with by telephone advice, or it may be more appropriate to arrange a hospital attendance.

Home visits are only available for patients who are too ill (eg terminally ill) or physically incapable of travelling to the surgery (eg a truly housebound patient for whom travel to the surgery by car would cause deterioration in their medical condition).

Our doctors typically see four patients in the practice in the time it takes to do a single home visit. For this reason, we ask our patients to come to the practice if at all possible. There are also better facilities for examining and treating patients at the surgery 

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.
