We are still visiting those who need a face to face assessment and our housebound during the Covid 19 pandemic. However, as with all appointments, we will try to manage your problem remotely in the first instance, through telephone/online/video consultation.
Whilst we encourage our patients to come to the surgery, where we have the proper equipment and facilities available, we do appreciate this is not always possible. In this respect, if you do need a home visit, you can help us by calling reception before 11.00am to enable us to allocate your call to your own doctor.
You may only request a home visit if you are 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. They will also decide how urgently a visit is needed. Please bear this in mind and be prepared to provide suitable details to enable the doctor to triage and schedule their home visits.
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.
