How to Request a Home Visit

You may only request a home visit if you are housebound or are too ill to visit the Practice. 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 help us by calling reception before 10.30 am. 

Your doctor will only visit you at home if they think that your medical condition requires it and they 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, and you should also be visited at home by the Health Visitor if you have recently had a baby or if you are newly registered with us and have a child under five years.
