Home Visits

Doctor's bag

The duty doctor will see you at your home if you are too ill to come to the surgery.  If at all possible, try to ring between 08:00 and 10:30 as this helps us to plan the rounds. 

Please also ensure that your house is clearly numbered.

When you telephone for a visit, the receptionist may ask you for a few details.  Our reception team have been trained to make these enquiries so that we can help you in the most appropriate way.

Please remember that seeing you at home takes on average four times as long as seeing you in the surgery, so please help us by keeping home visits to a minimum.  Babies and small children can often be brought to the surgery and we will do our best to ensure that they are slotted in and seen promptly.


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.
