Home visits are for patients who are too ill to be seen at the surgery.
Please do not ask the doctor to call unless the patient is genuinely too ill to attend the surgery. All requests for home visits, if possible, should be before 09:15 so that we can plan our day. Reception staff will ask the nature of the problem in order to help the doctor-on-call to arrange his/her schedule and assess the degree of urgency.
You can also 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.
