Home Visits

You may only request a home visit if you are housebound.

If you are not housebound, but want to request a home visit, you will be initially called by a doctor or member of the team to establish the need for a home visit.

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.

If you require support from carers to get to the surgery, please let our reception team know so they can book a suitable appointment for you.

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.
