If possible please try to telephone reception before 10:00 if you require a home visit. You can call 01271 329004 and select your doctor from the spoken menu. Please give the receptionist the full name and address of the patient.
Visits are usually made after morning surgery so if you feel the patient is too ill to wait please make it clear to the receptionist.
You may only 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.
You can 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.
