Home Visits

Requesting a home visit

Please be aware that our GPs will always call to assess the home visit request first.

Requests for home visits should be made before 11.00am. The receptionist may need to ask for some details of the problem. Please consider the necessity for a home visit; a child with a high temperature can safely be brought to the surgery where a more complete assessment is possible.

Home Visits are intended for the housebound and those too ill to travel. Requests for urgent medical attention which may involve a home visit are referred to the duty doctor.
