We would ask you to come to the surgery whenever possible, in order to take advantage of the facilities. If you are too unwell to do so, please call the surgery; we can arrange for the doctor to talk to you and, where necessary, arrange a home visit. Please call before 11am if possible, so the doctors can plan their work efficiently.
You may only request a home visit if you are housebound or are too ill to visit the practice. Your GP will only visit you at home if they think that your medical condition requires it and will also decide how urgently a visit is needed.
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.
If you are unsure whether you need to see a Doctor or Nurse please ask reception for assistance.
