Home visits

The Practice list size is constantly growing. In order to meet patient needs we are evolving the way we deliver healthcare and as part of this review will have revised our Home Visiting policy. Home visiting is vital to patients who are housebound due to their current illness, however it does draw a significant amount of Clinician time from the surgery. Home visits will continue to be triaged by a Doctor and if needed a Nurse Practitioner will carry out the visit. Please note, home visits will not be authorised for : Lack of Transport, Child Care issues, Poor weather conditions or a patients financial situation. We will continue to work with patients who are restricted to specific appointment times due to transport issues.
