Please try to attend the surgery if at all possible as it takes much longer for the doctor to see you at home and they may need facilities which are only available in the surgery. If a home visit is necessary, please try to let us know as early as possible, preferably between 8.00am and 9.30am so that the doctors' visiting rounds may be planned efficiently. However if you request a visit please note this request will be assessed by a doctor and they may contact you to discuss your condition and make any necessary arrangements for you to be seen - this could be either at home, if deemed to be necessary by the doctor and you are genuinely housebound, or at the surgery if more appropriate. In some cases you may be advised to go directly to hospital for treatment.
You can be visited at home by a community nurse if you are referred by your GP or following hospital discharge.
