If possible please try to telephone reception before 10am if you require a home visit.
A doctor or nurse may phone you back as it may be that your problem can be dealt with by telephone advice, or that it would be more appropriate to send a nurse, or indeed arrange a hospital attendance.
House visits are only available for patients who are housebound because of illness or disability.
Please remember that several patients can be seen in the practice in the time that it takes to make one home visit. There are also better facilities for examining and treating patients at the Medical Centre.
In addition to your Registered GP Home Visits, we also offer a home visiting service which is ran by Viaduct. Your usual GP may refer you to this service if your medical needs fit in the criteria. The Clinical and Acute Home Visiting Service is made up of a team of GPs, Advanced Nurse Practitioners, Paramedics and Healthcare Assistants.
It serves to offer additional capacity to GP Practices carrying out home visits throughout the day.
Key benefits of this service:
- Additional capacity in GP Practices
- A wide range of Home Visiting Services
By being able to respond to urgent care needs, this service would hope to support people to manage in their own homes.
