If possible please try to telephone reception before 10:30 am if you require a home visit.
House visits are only available for patients who are genuinely housebound because of illness or disability. If you request a home visit, we do expect the patient to be in the home and access available when the doctor or nurse attends. We cannot offer specific appointment times for home visits.
A doctor or nurse may phone you back as it may be that your problem can be dealt with by telephone advice, or that it would be more appropriate to send a nurse, or indeed arrange a hospital attendance.
House visits are only available for patients who are genuinely housebound because of illness or disability. Minor ailments such as coughs and colds are not normally sufficient reason to request a home visit
We cannot attend home visits because of a lack of transport or just for patient convenience. 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 Health Centre.
