How to Request a Home Visit

As a general rule, we would prefer to see patients in the surgery, where more comprehensive examinations can be undertaken. Short journeys are not usually harmful in cases of fever or acute illness.

However, if you are housebound and need medical attention, home visits are available.

Please telephone before 11:00 to book a home visit. It is possible that the GP will contact you by phone initially to discuss the problem. Routine visits are made between 13:00 and 15.30 daily.

Home Visits

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.
