West Unscheduled Care Project 'West Visits'

What is the Project about?

The purpose of the project is to test a new daytime urgent afternoon home visiting service for patients in the West Locality. An Advanced Nurse Practitioner (ANP) will visit patients who have requested an unscheduled home visit after 13.30pm that would usually have been undertaken by a General Practitioner (GP).

What will happen?

Patient requests for a home visit will be screened by a GP to see if they are suitable for this service. If suitable, the request will be passed onto the Advanced Nurse Practitioner who will visit the patient and will liaise with the GP practice regarding the outcome of the visit and any further action required.

Who’s involved?

  • Patients in West Locality receiving visits
  • Out of Hours Urgent Care (GMED)
  • All GPs and practices in the West Locality
