Home visits are only for patients who are too ill to attend the practice. Should you require a home visit please ring the practice before 11:00am. The receptionist will ask you a few details to allow the doctor to assess the urgency of your call and facilitate planning of the doctors visits. The reception staff are bound by the same code of confidentiality as the medical staff, so do not be afraid to give them some sort of idea as to what the problem is.
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.
