Home visits

You may 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. Please bear this in mind and be prepared to provide suitable details to enable the doctor to schedule house calls.

Your doctor may direct the paramedic Primary Care Visiting Service (PCVS) to attend in the first instance. The paramedic will liaise with your doctor as appropriate to determine the appropriate treatment for your needs. You can also be visited at home by a District Nurse if you are referred by your doctor.

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.

  • If you do need a home visit, you can discuss this with the Call Centre Team by phoning the practice on 01295 256 261 from 8am, Monday to Friday.
  • We would kindly ask that all patients requiring a home visit, telephone us before 11am if possible, so we can facilitate this as best we can with the resources that we have available on the day.
