Home Visits

If possible, please try to telephone reception before 10:30 if you require a home visit.

Under current COVID safety procedures, your home visit may be provided by a local community provider and not your GP.

You should only request a home visit if you are housebound (for example frail and elderly) or are too ill leave your home (for example our palliative care patients). A Clinician will only visit you at home if you are assessed and it is decided clinically that your medical condition requires it and will also decide how urgently a visit is needed.

Many issues can be managed by a telephone consultation or video link.

Lack of transport or lack of childcare are, in themselves, not reasons for a home visit.
