Home Visits

Please contact the surgery as soon as possible if you require a home visit.

Litcham Health Centre has its own practice community team, experienced nurses and healthcare assistants who are able to do a home visit if necessary. However, we do encourage our patients to visit the surgery for their appointments as it is much safer to do a clinical assessment within a medical environment.

You may only request a home visit if you are housebound or are too ill to visit the practice. Your GP will only visit you at home if they think that your medical condition requires it and will also decide how urgently a visit is needed.

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.
