Requests for home visits, except in emergencies, should be received by 10:00. You can request a home visit by calling the surgery.
Please make every effort to attend the surgery, as home visits are very time consuming. Due to the doctor’s practice commitments, you may not be visited until much later in the day.
The receptionist you speak to may ask for some information about the nature of the problem and this will be passed to the duty GP/nurse who may in turn contact you to discuss the problem and give immediate advice if that is deemed appropriate.
Visits are restricted to patients who are genuinely housebound, including patients in nursing homes or those being provided with ‘end of life’ care.
