You may request a home visit if you are housebound or are too ill to visit the practice. Otherwise we would always encourage you to attend the practice where we have all the necessary clinical equipment and full access to your medical records.
If you require a home visit please contact the practice before 10.30. The administrative staff will require sufficient clinical information and contact details to pass on the request to the medical team.
The doctor or ANP( advanced nurse practitioner) will visit you at home if they feel your medical condition requires it and will also decide how urgently a visit is needed. They may contact you by telephone for further information and to establish whether a visit is appropriate.
Home visits are usually made after the morning surgery. If the doctor has not telephoned or visited you by 14:30 please notify the practice.
You can also be visited at home by a community nurse if requested by the hospital or your doctor.
