How to Request a Home Visit

If possible please try to telephone a Patient Coordinator before 10am if you require a home visit.

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. We also use Paramedic Practitioners to complete some home visits. Your GP will decide if this is appropriate for you.

Home visits are only available for patients who are housebound because of illness or disability. Out of area registered patients will not be eligible for a home visit from the practice.

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 within the surgery.
