For home visit requests, please call as early as possible, preferably before 10:00. Your visit request details and contact telephone number are to be left with the receptionist who will pass to the Duty GP for assessment.
Not all Home visit requests will result in a Home visit. The GP should call you or your family member /carer with your permission to discuss the best options for all. We rely on the co-operation and good common sense of our patients in this respect.
Home visits are for those too frail, disabled or confined to bed.
You can also 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.
