Home Visits

Home visits are reserved for patients who are genuinely housebound and who do not leave the house for any reason.

We will only visit if the patient’s clinical condition prevents them from travelling to the surgery and they have a medical condition that necessitates an urgent medical opinion. Please give your name, address and telephone number and a brief description of your problem to the receptionist.

The GP or Nurse Practitioner will be able to return your call and speak with you to arrange a visit if it is medically appropriate to do so, or to arrange an alternative course of action.

Please call the surgery between 9:00 am -11:00 am Monday - Friday if you require a home visit. A GP will be scheduled to visit you after the end of morning surgery.

Please remember the GP can see seven patients in the time that it takes to do one house call.
