Home visiting by the doctor is for those cases who are housebound through illness or disability. All other patients should attend the surgery for their consultations.
If you are unsure whether a house call is needed ask to speak to the doctor, who can advise you further. Please make house call requests before 11:00am as this helps planning of rounds.
Poorly children can safely be brought to the surgery and we can arrange an isolated waiting area if needed.
The doctors do not routinely visit all patients who have been discharged from hospital unless requested.
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.
