A doctor can deal with approximately four patients in the practice in the time it takes to do a single home visit. For this reason, we ask our patients to come to the surgery if at all possible. However, we can visit you at home if your medical condition makes this necessary.
Please make requests for non-urgent home visits before 10am by calling our main switchboard number on 0191 2822890. (Later requests may be scheduled for the following day).
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.
