How to request a Home Visit

Please try to contact us via telephone before 11:00am if you require a home visit. A doctor, nurse or paramedic will then contact you to learn a bit more about the situation.

It may be that the health professional can provide an appropriate solution with telephone advice or with an appointment at the surgery.

It could also be more appropriate to send a district nurse, or to arrange for a hospital visit. Home visits are only available for patients who are housebound due to illness or disability.

Please remember that several patients can be seen in the practice in the time that it takes to make one home visit. There are also better facilities for examining and treating patients at the surgery.
