Patients should only request a home visit if they are house-bound, have serious illness and are too poorly to attend the surgery.  Patients with certain severe conditions that can be easily transmitted from person to person may receive special advice on how they may be assessed and treated,

Doctors are very busy and it is possible for them to see several patients in the surgery in the time it takes to do a single home visit. Think carefully before asking for a home visit and consider the available alternatives. Please read information about these on this page.

We understand that it can often be difficult to attend at  the surgery, but we cannot take this into account in most  cases. The needs of ALL patients needs to be taken into consideration and we have to use our judgement on priorities.

So that we can more easily identify urgent cases that may need emergency care at the hospital or are in need of an urgent GP assessment, when you ring for a visit please give as much information as possible. You may find the  following checklist helpful:
