How to Request a Home Visit




Please telephone to request home visits as early as possible giving a brief description of the problem to help the receptionists to assess if the visit is urgent. No guarantee can be given as to which GP will attend. Decisions as to whether or not a home visit is warranted rest with the GPs. Difficulty with transport is not in itself a valid reason to request a home visit.

Home visits should be requested the day before or on the day of visit. If the visit is deemed an emergency please phone before 10.30am for a same day visit. Visits requests received after 11:30 will be passed to the on-call doctor who will make the judgement whether the visit is for the same day or the day thereafter.
