Late Visits and Missed Visits 

It is not common practice of NFC to arrive late or miss customers visits. However, at times late visits are unavoidable, due to a number of reasons such as traffic, sickness or carers being held up on previous visit. In the event of this happening you will be contacted by a member of the office to inform you that your visits maybe late and you will be provided with an approximate time and kept informed if the carer runs beyond this time. Another staff member may be allocated to your call if your allocated worker is experiencing difficulties and is unable to attend your visit. However, NFC will always keep you informed. Missed visits are never acceptable and we ask that you or your representative contact the office if you feel your visit has been missed. However, NFC have various monitoring tools in place, which will alert the office if the carers have not arrived at your call.
