If possible please try to telephone reception before 10:30 if you require a home visit. The receptionist will ask for information in order that the doctor can prioritise the urgency of all patient needs.
You may only request a home visit if you are housebound or are too ill to visit the practice. In some circumstances you may be asked to attend the surgery where there are better facilities for examining and treating 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.
