Home visits are only for those who cannot attend the surgery due to their disability. Please do not request home visit if you can attend the surgery. The time it takes to do one visit, we can see at least three patients in the surgery. Therefore please make an effort to come to the surgery instead of requesting home visit. Remember a lot of the issues can be dealt with by our very capable and efficient district nurses. So please speak to your doctor if you feel your problem can be dealt with by the district nurses.
