Home Visiting Service

General Practice is continuing to evolve and our practices are offering a wider skill mix of clinicians than ever. Most practices employ a Practice Nurse and / or Health Care Assistant and some have Nurse Practitioners, Community Pharmacists, Minor Illness Nurses and Women’s Health Nurses which offer a whole range of skills for problems that do not necessarily require a GP.

Epping and Ongar Neighbourhood, consisting of The Limes, Epping High Street, Abridge Surgery and Ongar Health Centre have appointed Joanne Townsend, an Extended Care Practitioner (ECP) to carry out home visits. This will mean that visits are accepted as usual by each practice and triaged by a Doctor at Abridge Surgery who will then allocate appropriate visits to the Home Visiting Service. If a prescription is needed then the ECP will liaise with the Doctor at Abridge Surgery for it to be sent electronically to the chemist for collection.

When you speak to the receptionist about your visit they will let you know who to expect – the ECP or a GP from Abridge Surgery.

The number of visits the service is able to offer will be allocated fairly between each of the practices depending on the list size of the Practice and the location of the visit.
