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 10.30am or as early as possible in the morning.
Home Visits are FOR THE ELDERLY, FRAIL AND HOUSEBOUND PATIENTS. Your GP will ring you to assess the clinical need, therefore a current contact number is essential, and then they will arrange a clinical response from the advanced nurse practitioner response team to your home if clinically appropriate.
Please bear this in mind that appropriate home visits will be carried out after morning or evening surgeries, therefore normally in the afternoon or after the surgery has closed.
All HOME VISIT requests will be triaged by a GP with a telephone call, and then if clinically appropriate, a visit will be arranged via the community advanced nurse practitioner service.
