Home Visits

We ask our patients to come to the practice if at all possible.  At the surgery you can be examined in an environment that is better equipped and therefore safer for you.  Also our doctors can see up to four patients in the surgery in the time it takes to do one home visit.  However we can visit you at home if your condition means you cannot come in.  Doctor's bagIf possible please try to telephone reception between 08:30 and 11:00 if you do require a home visit.

You may only request a home visit if you are housebound or are too ill to visit the practice. 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.

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.
