It is clinically better for you to be seen at the surgery where we have better facilities, diagnostic aids and lighting to assess you, however, if you need a home visit please contact the surgery as early as possible in the morning, before 10:00, and give one of our receptionists your specific details.
Home visits are ONLY for housebound patients and for those too ill to attend the surgery. Home visits are not for those who do not have transport. 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.
