There have been some changes to the way home visits have been made since the start of the pandemic. Within Leicestershire, a dedicated home visiting service (Acute Home Visiting Service) was set up to provide care at home to those who need it. They provide vital clinical support to GP practices at this time.
We are happy to provide care at home where appropriate. We understand patients and their carers prefer care to take place in the home rather than in the hospital.
- We ask for home visit requests to be made before 10:30 am.
- Home visits requests will be reviewed by the duty GP and triaged by the telephone first.
- Requests may be passed on to our acute home visiting service.
