If possible please try to telephone reception before 10:00 if you require a home visit.
Home visits are for housebound patients or those who are too ill to attend the practice. The doctor may call you back before visiting you. In some situations it is often safer and more effective to examine you at the practice because it is better equipped. Therefore the doctor may ask you to come in to the practice either immediately or at a specified time if that is appropriate for you.
You can 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.
