If you need a home visit you should contact us before 10am if at all possible. Home visits are for housebound patients only. The clinician will triage the visit request to see whether it is required. A clinician can see six patients in the time it takes for one home visit so these are for patients who never leave the house or cannot leave due to the severity of their illness. Please note that not having access to transport does not mean you require a home visit. It is always safer to be seen in the surgery where the clinicians have access to your medical record and any equipment they need to examine you.
