Please try to telephone reception as early in the day as possible if you require a home visit and give the reception staff as much detail about your symptoms as you can. The doctor may need to call you back so you will need to provide a contact number.
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 and will also decide how urgently a visit is needed.
You can 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.
