If you are housebound due to illness or disability we offer a home visit service. We aim to visit usually between 12:00 – 14:00 and therefore ask that all home visit requests are made as early as possible but ideally by 11:00. If a home visit request is made after 11:00, the doctor on-call will be notified and will decide whether or not the visit will take place on the same day. It may be that the doctor will visit that evening or book for the visit may take place the following day.
All home visits are at the discretion of the doctors.
Upon requesting a home visit, the receptionist will ask for details of the problem to ensure that the doctor can prioritise the home visit and to ensure you receive the most appropriate level of care at the most appropriate time.
You may be visited by a GP, GP Registrar or Advanced Nurse Practitioner. Whilst we try to accommodate patient preference of clinician, this may not always be possible.
Please Note: Lack of transport to the surgery is NOT a valid reason for a home visit!
