Home Visits Policy
Home Visits are discretionary and not an absolute requirement of GP terms and services. Home Visits are a poor use of GP time. By attending surgery, patients can be assessed more thoroughly as doctors have access to appropriate equipment and timely investigations. Consultations outside of surgery carry higher risk of medical errors. The quality of medical care must take precedence over patient convenience. The Practice has a policy on Home Visits, which enables all of our patients to have fair and equal access to a clinician. Home Visits are reserved for patients in extreme need only. No patient, however, deemed to be in definite need of a Home Visit will be refused. The full Practice policy on Home Visits can be viewed here: 2017-09-01 Home Visits Policy - to be reviewed Sept 2019
