The service is for people over the age of 18 who can't go to their GP or their practice nurse. Patients are seen in their own home, or in care homes.
Where possible, we want to help people to stay in their own homes. We promote independence and support people to return home from hospital.
Carers' support and advice is a key part of the care we give.
