Home Visits

Doctor's bag

If you are not fit to come to the surgery, the doctor may visit you at home. When possible, request home visits before 10:00. The receptionist will ask you one or two questions to assess the urgency of the call. This will help the doctor to decide the order of priority and to plan his round. Urgent calls will be attended to immediately. However, it is not always possible to see your registered doctor on a home visit.

The computerised records and some pieces of medical equipment which are so helpful in modern general practice are only available at the surgery.

Your doctor can usually see several patients at the surgery in the time that it takes to make a single home visit.

Please do not request a home visit simply because you do not have transport to the surgery

Home visits are expensive and time-consuming and should only be for patients who are genuinely house-bound or too ill to come to the surgery. If you have transport problems, please call reception for advice.

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.
