Any requests for home visits should be made by contacting the Practice by 11am at the latest
Normally we will only conduct a home visit if the patient concerned is :
- Elderly and housebound OR
- Terminally ill
Once a home visit request has been made the clinician will then assess whether a home visit is appropriate either by a member of the clinical team here at Practice or from the Clinical Response Team, and if so the level of urgency, based on the information which has been provided and the patient's medical history.
When we are closed requests for home visits are dealt with by our Out of Hours Service.
