Home Visits

Home visits by the GP may be appropriate for elderly patients who are housebound, for patients with certain medical conditions and for patients who are terminally ill. Most medical problems are best managed at the surgery, where there are the correct facilities and equipment to allow a thorough assessment. It is the patient’s or carer’s responsibility to arrange transport to the surgery.

If you feel that you need a home visit, please try to telephone the surgery before 10.00. The receptionist will ask for a few details in order for the GP to prioritise urgent calls. It is likely that the duty doctor or nurse may telephone you to discuss how your problem can best be assessed and managed. It may not be possible for your usual doctor to provide a home visit.
