Home Visits

Doctor's bag

If you require a home visit please, where possible, telephone before 10.30am. You will be required to give the receptionist some indication of the problem. Our home visit guidelines are:-

1. GP visit recommended

Home visiting makes clinical sense and is the best way of giving a medical opinion in cases involving the terminally ill. The truly housebound patient for whom travel to premises by car would cause deterioration in their medical condition.

2. GP visit may be useful

Following a conversation with a health professional, it may be agreed that a seriously ill patient may be helped by a GP’s visit.

3. GP visit is not usual

In most of these cases a visit would not be an appropriate use of your GP’s time or best for you:

Heart Attack – severe crushing chest pain. The best approach is to call 999.

Common symptoms of childhood: fevers, cold, cough, earache, headache, diarrhoea/vomiting and most cases of abdominal pain. These patients are usually well enough to travel to the surgery.  
It is not harmful to take a child with fever outside.

Adults with common problems, such as cough, sore throat, influenza, general malaise, back pain and abdominal pain are also readily transportable to the doctor’s surgery. Transport arrangements are the responsibility of the patients or their carers.
