Who is the service for
Home visits are available to those patients who are genuinely house bound due to a medical problem. When requesting a home visit, the team will ask a number of questions to help the doctor assess your suitability and needs. Whenever possible, we prefer to see patients in practice where we have the appropriate facilities and clinical equipment available. Home visits are not for those who do not have transport.
How to arrange a home visit
Please call reception before 11.30, for contact details of each practice, please visit our contact us page.
The GP may call you back if they would like to discuss your condition with you or to determine if an alternative form of consultation is more suitable.
We try and see all home visits on the same day, however urgent problems take priority and so you may have to wait if your problem is less urgent.
