NHS Domiciliary Home Visits in Essex

We do offer home visits in Essex under NHS regulation although there is a strict national criteria which you have to meet to qualify for this.

It is offered to only those people who are house-bound / bed-bound and are unable to leave their residence for any reason i.e. doctor appointments, hairdresser / barber, podiatry or social occasions etc.

NHS charges apply unless you are exempt owing to benefit or exemption certificates. Please see NHS charges leaflet for details.

Referral will be accepted from individuals, family members, carers or health care professionals.

Once accepted on a referral basis into Community Dental Services, you would be added to the current waiting list. Emergency care will be given preference, but you will be contacted within a 4 to 6 week period with a visit date which will be within 18 weeks of the initial referral. A new referral will be needed for each course of treatment required.


For all questions regarding referrals, please contact our referrals team.
