Home Visits

Requesting a home visit

Home visits are only available for patients who are truly housebound because of illness or disability. It is the clinician’s responsibility to decide where the consultation should take place.  Before requesting a home visit ask yourself if you really need a clinician to come out to your home or whether you could get to the surgery.  If possible please try to telephone before 10 am stating you name and address and telephone number where you can be contacted, and the nature of the problem as this helps us to plan the order of the visits.  A doctor or nurse may phone you back as it may be that your problem can be dealt with by telephone advice. 

Unfortunately, we cannot offer a visit by a clinician of your choice.
