Patients are requested to telephone 01502 565936 before 11:00 if a home visit is required that day.
We will normally only agree a home visit if:
- The patient is genuinely housebound
- Moving the patient may make their condition worse
- End of life care
Before a visit is agreed, a GP will always review the request and may decide on a different form of consultation. The GP may decide that a visit with an appropriate clinician may be appropriate.
