Home visits are for housebound patients or at the discretion of the doctors and are for seriously ill patients (who cannot attend surgery). All requests should be made before 10.30 am.
Lack of transportation to the health centre is not a valid reason for a home visit.
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.
