Home Visits

Whilst we encourage our patients to come to the surgery, where we have the proper equipment and facilities available, we do appreciate this is not always possible. In this respect, if you do need a home visit, you can help us by calling reception before 10:30 on 01234 849090 (Option 2).


Doctor's bag

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.


Home visits suitable:

¨ Bed Bound

¨ Terminally ill

¨ Generally unwell and too poorly to visit the Surgery.                                                                            

(This will be at the GPs discretion)

Home visits unsuitable:

¨ No transport or money

¨ Children

¨ Young people and anyone who is mobile

¨ Social reasons

Please inform the receptionist of any pets in the household, any parking access

issues and any potential risks to the visiting GP when requesting a visit.



Urgent Home Visits

The doctors will be informed immediately and will decide if a visit is needed or whether it would be more appropriate to call an ambulance for conditions such as chest pain, haemorrhage or sever shortness of breath or any stroke problem
