The doctor or nurse can visit patients who are seriously ill or who cannot leave the house. If you need a home visit please call the surgery before 10.00. You may receive a visit from an emergency care practitioner rather than a doctor if it is appropriate.
Do please try to come to the surgery if at all possible. A doctor can see 3-5 patients at the surgery in the time it takes him/her to visit one patient at home.
You can also be visited at home by a community nurse if you are referred by your GP. 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.
