A home visit request should be requested by 10.30am wherever possible. Home visits are only available for patients who are housebound because of disability or illness.
A Doctor or nurse may phone you back prior to a visit to ensure this is necessary as often a problem can be dealt with by telephone medical advice or indeed it may require a hospital attendance.
Before requesting a home visit, please remember that several patients could be seen in the practice in the time that it takes to make one home visit. There are also better facilities for examining and treating patients at the Practice.
