Home Visit Policy

Almeda Health Care does not routinely offer home visits as part of our normal services. However, if there are extenuating circumstances where you believe a patient may require a home visit from one of our doctors, please call the practice and provide reception staff with as much explanatory details as possible.

The following criteria must be met for a home visit:

  • The patient is a regular patient of this practice
  • The patient resides in a location that is within five (5) kilometres of the practice
  • Where it is deemed safe and reasonable
  • The patient has the type of problem that necessitates a home visit such as: acutely ill, immobile, elderly or no means of transport
  • Unable to access the practice facilities due to disability

During the Covid – 19 Pandemic telephone consultations are available for regular patients.
