Home VisitsDoctors Bag

Where possible please telephone reception between 8:30 am - 10:00 am if you require a home visit.

What will happen when I call?

You will be asked the reason for the home visit and the doctor will telephone you first to discuss the need for the visit.

Am I eligible for a home visit?

  • You can have a home visit if you are unwell and 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.

If you require regular home visits your GP may refer you to be visited at home by a community nurse.

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.
