Home visiting service
The home visiting service is a GP-led service to boost home visiting capacity for primary care. The service will support home visiting and care needs for shielded patients.
Shielded patients with no Covid symptoms requiring face-to-face assessment should be seen via home visits unless an alternative care setting is clinically indicated.
To access to this service a GP will refer a patient via the Single point of Access (SPA)
