We expect patients who are able to attend surgery to do so, however, we are happy to visit patients who are medically housebound and consequently unable to come to the surgery.
If you find it difficult to use public transport or you are having to rely on family and friends for lifts, ask about Community Transport alternatives that are currently available. Please be aware that there may be a charge applied for such services.
Where possible, please ensure that your request for a home visit is made before 10:30.
Requests for urgent calls will, of course, still be dealt with after this time. In most cases the doctor will telephone you prior to coming to see you in order to establish that a home visit is the most appropriate course of action.
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.
