Requests for home visits are handled in the first instance the same way as our other appointments. You will be listed for a triage call with the GP or Nurse Practitioner. They will then make the clinical decision as to whether a home visit is necessary.
Most problems can be dealt with more quickly and effectively if you come to the Health Centre, because facilities and equipment are available, which can't be used in the home. A home visit will not be made just because a patient has transport problems.
Please do not ask our receptionists to book a home visit, as all home visit requests are decided by a GP or Nurse Practitioner.
