Our policy, and that of NHS 111, is not to carry out home visits other than in exceptional circumstances, e.g. terminal illness, patients that are housebound.
If you feel you are in need of a home visit please contact the surgery and arrange a telephone consultation first, the doctor or nurse will assess you over the phone and decide if a home visit is required.
Please remember that several patients can be seen in the practice in the time that it takes to make one home visit. There are also better facilities for examining and treating patients at the surgery. It is rare for a child to need a home visit. A child with a high temperature should be given a dose of paracetamol and brought to the surgery.
