Urgent Home Visits
Urgent home visits are available every day between 08:00 am and 6.30 pm for those who cannot get to the surgery due to chronic disease or sudden ill health and need a home visit.
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 healthworker such as a physiotherapist, social worker or specialist nurse. The doctor will discuss your problem with you and agree the best way forward to manage your problem.
Routine home visit
Routine home visits by a doctor are offered to all our housebound patients twice a year for a general check-up. Where necessary a doctor can visit more regularly than twice a year, if there are any concerns.
Chronic disease monitoring
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 weekly meeting.
