If possible please try to telephone reception before 10:00 if you require a home visit.
A doctor or nurse may phone you back as it may be that your problem can be dealt with by telephone advice, or that it would be more appropriate to send a nurse, or indeed arrange a hospital attendance.
House visits are only available for patients who are housebound because of illness or disability. They are not available to patients having difficulty getting an appointment at the surgery, or who don't want to pay for travel to the surgery.
Please remember that several patients can be seen in the practice in the time that it takes to make one home visit. There are also better facilities for examining and treating patients at the surgery.
East Leeds Home Visiting Scheme
The Practice is part of the East Leeds Home Visiting Scheme which is an innovative and enthusiastic team integrated with the practice whose focus is on patients who are housebound. This service was developed by our local practices working together to improve our population care. The team is carrying out long term condition reviews for housebound patients and also visiting them when they become unwell. They work in partnership with the practice and have been shown to have significantly improved the quality of care our housebound patients receive.
