Home Visiting and After-Hours Attendances
Home visiting is available to patients who have attended the medical centre within the previous 12 months. Home visiting and after-hours attendances are provided by our Home Doctor Service Telephone 137425. Your request for after hours home visit consultation will be triaged by the call centre prior to any attendance.
Appointments can be made online, over the phone, or in person. If you do have an urgent health condition, please advise reception upon arrival or at the time of booking. Standard consultations are 15 minutes with our GPs. Double appointments are available if you feel more time will be required. Longer appointments are generally advised for situations such as first antenatal visits, pap smears, multi-country travel vaccinations, and Medicare care plans. Appointments enable the doctor to manage his time so as to accommodate all patients. There is often also a need to deal with urgent problems and to see patients who need unexpected medical attention. We are therefore happy to see patients who ‘walk in’ without an appointment. Patients with appointments are given priority whilst ‘walk in’ patients may have a wait.
This practice provides 24-hour access to a GP. In the event of an urgent health matter occurring outside opening hours, please contact our main phone number for information regarding the After-hour doctor service.
