Patients who are housebound may request a home visit. Decisions as to whether or not a home visit is warranted rest with the GPs.
Please telephone before 10am if at all possible to requests visits. The majority of requests should therefore be received in the morning. We cannot guarantee which GP will attend.
If requests are received after 1pm and the visit cannot wait until the next day, the request will be passed immediately to the registered GP or the duty doctor if the registered GP is absent.
Requests for URGENT or IMMEDIATE visits will be referred immediately to your registered GP. If your registered GP is not working that day then the visit will be passed to the duty doctor for his/her advice.
If you are experiencing CHEST PAIN please to dial 999 immediately rather than wait for a home visit.
