How we look after our house bound patients.
Who is the service for
We only offer home visits to patients who are genuinely housebound due to a medical problem. The final decision on who gets a home visit rests with the GP. We ask all other patients to use an alternative form of consultation.
How to arrange a home visit
Please call reception before 10:00am, they will ask you some basic details so that the GP can make a decision on suitability for a visit.
The GP may call you back if they think an alternative form of consultation is more suitable. We try and see all home visits on the same day, however urgent problems take priority and so you may have to wait until the following day if your problem is less urgent.
Our visiting times
We usually carry out home visits between 12pm – 2pm.
