Home Visits

Whilst we encourage our patients to come to the surgery, where we have the proper equipment and facilities available, we do appreciate this is not always possible. This is why we have a certain number of house calls that can be made from a doctor. If you do need a home GP visit, you can assist us by calling reception before 10:30am, and we can discuss arranging a home doctor to come and see you.  All requests for a home visit are triaged by a GP.  The decision as to whether a home visit is warranted rests solely with the doctor on call and is based on clinical assessment.

Who is eligible for a home visit by the doctor?

You may only request a home visit if you are housebound or are too ill to visit the practice. Your GP will only visit you at home if they think that your medical condition requires it and will also decide how urgently a visit is needed. Please bear this in mind and be prepared to provide suitable details to enable the doctor to schedule house calls.

When will a home doctor visit?

The doctors usually make home visits between morning and afternoon surgeries.  We cannot guarantee which doctor will visit you.

You can also be visited at home by a community nurse if you are referred by your GP. You should 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.

Please remember that demand for GP appointments is very high.  A GP can see up to 4 patients in the surgery in the time it takes to make one home visit, and may be unable to do a full examination in your home without the specialist equipment that is available at the surgery.

If you have any questions or queries regarding home visits by a doctor, please contact the surgery on 0161 368 3312, preferably before 10:30.
