Survey of home visiting by general practitioners in North-east England.

Abstract

A total of 190 general practitioners in North-east England recorded the details of each home visit they made during a two-week period towards the end of 1969. Altogether 17,200 visits were made and these have been analysed. Two major points emerge: firstly, the extreme variation in visiting habits by general practitioners; and, secondly, the feeling that many home visits were unnecessary.
