Home visits must only be requested if you or your relative are too ill or too infirm to attend the surgery. Requests for home visits should be made as soon as possible in the morning (before 10.30am). Late calls are for emergencies only or to arrange a visit for another day. A clinician may ring you beforehand to discuss your needs.
You can 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.
