Home visits are only indicated for patients who are unable to attend the surgery. This would generally be those patients who are ordinarily housebound and unable to leave the house.
If you are too ill to come to the surgery, a home visit can be requested by ‘phoning the surgery before 10:00 , giving details of the illness. Home visit requests are triaged by the duty doctor to assess appropriateness prior to visiting.
We work closely with the Cambridgeshire Joint Emergency Team (JET) who are commissioned to provide urgent medical assessments for housebound unwell patients and those with sudden worsening of chronic health conditions.
