Abstract

An examination was made of the need in a group practice serving a semirural area for a transport service to carry to the main surgery, a health centre, selected patients who would otherwise have received a home visit. The possibility that such a service could bring attenders at the branch

services and from the 1966 sample Census was also used.

branch surgery and its replacement by a bus service connecting the village and the main surgery twice a week would result in considerable extra expense to the practice though it would offer village patients without private cars more frequent opportunities to attend the surgery and

a wider range of doctors to see in the surgery. It was recommended that the branch surgery should be retained and consideration given to using it more intensively.
