Home Visits

Doctor's bagWhilst we encourage our patients to come to the surgery, where we have the proper equipment and facilities available and our doctors can see several patients at the practice in the time it takes to make a single home visit.  We do appreciate this is not always possible, in this respect, if you do need a home visit you can help us by calling reception before 11:00 am.

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.  Babies and children can usually be brought to the surgery even when ill and will always be fitted in quickly if necessary.

You can also 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.

To request a home visit, please:

  • Call the surgery on 0121 796 2777 before 11:00.
  • Be prepared to tell the receptionist about your condition so we can prioritise the most urgent cases and arrange the most appropriate course of action.
  • Ensure the surgery has up to date details of your address and telephone number.
