Home Visits

Too ill to attend the surgery?

Home visits are available to patients who are unable to visit the surgery due to their condition, ie those who are housebound or terminally ill.

Home visits may be carried out by a GP or an Advanced Nurse Practitioner. We may phone first to ensure the home visit is necessary and the best place for you to be seen. Please phone as early in the day as possible if you feel you need a home visit for yourself or a relative.

Surgery visits are overall much safer and more effective as we have full access to all your records and access to equipment, further tests, other members of the team and emergency kit eg oxygen etc should it be needed.

They are also a much more efficient use of the doctor’s time (on average 4 patients can be seen in surgery for every one house call).
