Home Visits

Please telephone reception by 10.30am if you require a home visit and let us know if your condition is urgent.

You may only request a home visit if you are housebound. A clinical professional will only visit you at home if they think that your medical condition requires it and will also decide how urgently a visit is needed.

Acute Visiting Team (AVS)

A highly skilled and dedicated team of Emergency Care Practitioners (ECP’s) provide visits to patients in their own homes. When patients contact their GP requesting a same day home visit, the GP’s will refer on to the acute home visiting service. The aim of the service is to reduce inappropriate hospital admissions and enable patients to be cared for at home when it is clinically safe to do so. The service supports GP’s to manage urgent care needs and enables them to focus on other priorities in Primary Care.
