How we look after our house bound patients.
Who is the service for
We only offer home visits to patients who are genuinely bedbound due to a medical problem and are unable to attend surgery. 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 request a home visit before 11am. House visits after 11am, unless they are emergencies may not be seen on the day. The receptionist may ask for some details of your condition to help the doctor assess the urgency of visits as they plan rounds.
