Visits at Home
Regrettably, we are only able to offer appointments at home for patients who are housebound. This conforms with NHS policy for home visits. Generally speaking, the home environment is less suitable than the surgery for carrying out examinations and making diagnoses.
Home visit requests should be made before 11am if possible.
From February 2018 the majority of our home visits will be conducted by Nurse Clinicians who are fully trained and experienced in this area. There will be a GP available to support the nurses at all times.
