If possible please try to telephone reception before 10:00 if you require a home visit. Please do not ask for a house call after 14:00 unless it is an emergency as this will delay the start of afternoon surgery.
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.
Patients who demand a home visit because they cannot obtain an appointment will be asked to register with another practice which may be able to serve their needs better.
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.
