If you are housebound or too unwell to attend the surgery, you may ask for a home visit by contacting the surgery. It is helpful if such requests are made before 10.00 each day, as the doctors have to plan their rounds before leaving the surgery. Emergency home visits may be requested at any time.
Please be aware that a GP may telephone you before visiting to ensure that the visit is necessary. In some instances you may be visited by a member of the JET team (Joint Emergency Team) instead of by a GP if this is felt to be appropriate.
