House visits

Please call us as soon as possible in the morning, to request a house visit – ideally by 10.30am.

Home visits are only available for people registered as housebound with us, and for patients with temporary health problems which mean they physically can’t attend the Practice – for example, recent surgery.

Home visits are for medical reasons, not for convenience.

In the time it takes to make one house visit, the doctor can see many more patients at the surgery. Please request a home visit only if it’s absolutely essential and first consider whether someone could help you attend the surgery or if local services such as HcL Dial-a-Ride can help.

A doctor will assess whether your symptoms require a home visit, and if so whether you need to be visited by a GP or by our specialist paramedic.
