Patients who are housebound may request a home visit. Decisions as to whether or not a home visit is warranted rest with the GPs and patients are likely to be assessed at home by our experienced paramedic.
Please telephone before 10am if at all possible to requests visits. The majority of requests should, therefore, be received in the morning. Visits requests received after 2pm will be dealt with in a phone call in the first instance.
Requests for URGENT or IMMEDIATE visits will be referred immediately to your registered GP. If your registered GP is not working that day then the visit will be passed to the duty doctor for his/her advice.
