The doctor may visit you at home if you are too ill to come to the surgery. In the time it takes to do one visit, the doctor could see six other patients. As such, this service is reserved for housebound patients only.
We have a modern, fully-equipped surgery and it is better for you to use it when possible. If you feel that you need a visit during the day (08:00 – 18:30), please call the surgery number and follow the telephone system instructions.
A clinician will assess the request before visiting and may call first.
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.
