How do I request a Home Visit?

Please note that we can see up to 3 or 4 more patients in the surgery for every one seen at home, therefore we ask that requests for home visits be strictly necessary:

  • Housebound patients may require visiting at home for both medical and nursing care. If so please ring the surgery before 10:30 am, if possible.
  • Visits are undertaken after morning surgery.
  • If you have an urgent medical condition you must attend the local Accident & Emergency Department or ring 999 for help.
  • Lack of transport is not a valid reason for a home visit.
