Home Visits

Doctor's bagWhilst we encourage our patients to come to the surgery, where we have the proper equipment and facilities available, we do appreciate this is not always possible. In this respect, if you do need a home visit, you can help us by calling reception before 10:30.

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. Please bear this in mind and be prepared to provide suitable details to enable the doctor to schedule house calls

It is entirely up to the duty GP whether your specific condition is best managed by a house call. If urgent blood tests, X Rays or an ECG are needed, you may be referred directly to the nearest accident and emergency Dept.

You can also be visited at home by district nurse if you are referred by your GP.
