Whilst we encourage our patients to come to the surgery, where we have the proper equipment and facilities available, we do appreciate this is not always possible. In this respect, if you would like to request a home visit, you can help us by calling reception on 01494 862 325 ideally before 10:30 am.
You may only request a home visit if you are housebound or are too ill to visit the practice. Your GP may well phone you back in the first instance to discuss your request and decide if your medical condition requires an urgent GP visit or whether the matter can be dealt with over the phone. The GP will also make a decision as to how urgently a visit is required. Please bear this in mind and be prepared to provide suitable details to enable the doctor to schedule house calls.
You can also 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.
