Arrange a GP home visit

If you or someone in your family is unable to come to the surgery because of illness, then you can arrange a home visit.

You can arrange a home visit by calling the surgery through 01225 310883 and explaining your problem. We can then arrange to see the most urgent cases first.

If you are able to come to the surgery, then we would appreciate it if you could book an appointment. This is because home visits can take up to six times longer than an in-person surgery visit, so it helps the GP to see more patients if you can try to come to the surgery.

You can also bring your children into the surgery if they have a high temperature.

How to arrange a home visit

You can arrange for a GP to see you by calling the surgery.

You can also be visited at home by a community nurse if you are referred by your GP. You should 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.
