Whilst 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. You will be asked for your name, telephone number and a brief description of your symptoms. This information will be passed to a nurse practitioner who may contact you and ask further questions about your symptoms to help her judge the urgency of your call and to decide what will be the most appropriate action.
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.
