Cheer of home visits has become a chore

Comment

IMO almost all home visits except truly end of life visits are a complete waste of time. We now only visit truly bed bound or chair bound patients. We phone triage every visit request and have reduced visits by 80% in one year. Most are either unnecessary, can come to surgery or can be done over the phone.
