Urgent home visits are available every day between 8:00am to 6:30pm for those who cannot get to the surgery due to disability, chronic disease or sudden ill health.
Please call 020 3764 0822 as early as possible from 8am so that the doctor has time to arrange any emergency treatment you may need the same day.
When you call you will be assessed by the duty doctor to see if you need a doctor to visit you at home, or whether your problems would be better served by a visit from a community health worker such as a specialist nurse, social worker or physiotherapist. The doctor will discuss your problem with you and agree the best way forward to manage your condition.
Routine home visits by a doctor are offered to all our housebound and vulnerable elderly patients twice a year for a general check-up. Where necessary a doctor can visit more regularly if there are any concerns.
District nurses and specialist chronic disease nurses visit our housebound patients regularly to monitor their chronic health conditions and report back to the doctors at a monthly meeting.
