These are for patients who are housebound or whose condition would deteriorate by travelling. We DO NOT offer this service for childcare problems, transport problems or financial difficulties.
We expect children to be brought to the surgery. They can be seen quickly and in the most appropriate surroundings, where action can be taken immediately if needed. We have appointments available every day and we will see your child at short notice.
Advanced Nurse Practitioner, Sister Lynn Kitson, deals with the majority of the home visits as she specialises in long-term conditions, palliative care and care of the elderly.
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.
