For acute illness and emergencies, home visits will always be offered on the same day. If there is no doctor immediately available in the surgery the practice staff on duty will arrange for the next available doctor to call as soon as possible.
You are asked to help us by requesting a home visit before 10:00 and only if there is a medical reason that stops you from coming to the surgery or when it is appropriate for the doctor to manage your condition at home. Due to the large practice area, where possible, we try to arrange home visits that are not immediately urgent to particular areas on regular days.
You can 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.
