Home Visits & Urgent Visits

Home Visits

If you are housebound or too ill to get to the practice, you can ask to be seen at home.

However, please do not ask for a home visit unless you really cannot get to the surgery because of a health problem.

GPs can see several patients at the surgery in the time it takes to get to a patient’s home. In addition, when making home visits, GPs do not have the facilities and equipment the surgery provides.

Non-urgent visits

These can be arranged with your doctor with a few days notice.

Urgent visits

Will be done as quickly as possible, but your own doctor may not be available. It helps if you can call before 10.30am
