Your doctor is happy to visit patients at home if their illness is such as to reasonably prevent them from attending the surgery. However, there are better facilities at the surgery for examination and treatment. Most ill patients, particularly children, can travel to the surgery without any harm.
If possible please try to telephone reception before 10:00 if you require a home visit.
You can be visited at home by a community nurse if you are referred by your GP. You should also be visited at home by a health visitor if you have recently had a baby or if you are newly registered with a GP and have a child under five years.
