House visits are intended for those patients who are unable to come to the Practice in person, either as a result of acute illness or longstanding disability. Requests for house visits should be made by 11.00am to allow the GPs to include them in their schedule for the day. When requesting a house visit, please give the receptionist the following information:
- Patient name
- Date of birth
- Current location
- Location for house visit (if different)
- Contact number at current location
- Urgency of call, e.g. is it an emergency or can it wait until after surgery?
