Out of Area Registration
Home Visit Policy for Out Of Area Patients
You have recently asked to register at the practice as an ‘out of area’ registered patient. If your registration is accepted this means that the practice will not provide home visits.
You may on occasion, develop an urgent illness or injury at home that means attending the GP surgery as normal would not be appropriate. If this happens you will need to contact the practice in the first instance. If we determine you need access to services local to where you live we may ask you to call NHS 111.
In these circumstances NHS 111 will direct you to the local service that has been established by NHS England for patients such as you. This local service could be a GP practice near to where you live, the local walk-in or urgent care centre, A&E or minor injuries unit. This local service will then decide if you can attend for an urgent face to face appointment with a healthcare professional or if a home visit is needed which will be based on your individual circumstances.
If this is in the out-of-hours period when GP surgeries are normally closed (between 6:30pm and 8:00am weekdays and during weekends/bank holidays) NHS 111 will direct you to the local out-of-hours provider.
