Home visits are only to be used for patients who are too ill to come in to the surgery. They are not to be used because patients have no transport or the weather is too awful etc.
In the time it takes a Doctor to do one visit, they could have seen 3 patients in the surgery.
If you feel that you are too ill to attend surgery, then please call before 10.00am to request a visit. Please provide the reception staff with as much information as possible. A doctor will ring you before they visit to ensure that the visit is appropriate.
