You might also find that one GP might not meet all your needs. For example, some people might want to see a GP of the same gender or cultural background or might prefer a particular GP for some medical problems and another GP for others.
Regardless of your preference, a long-term relationship with your GP is important for your family’s current and future health. Your relationship with your GP – as well as with any other health professional – is a partnership. Your GPs role is to work together with you and your family to have the best outcome for your health and the health of your family.
Our doctors are available for house calls. This service is reserved for urgent issues when the patient cannot attend the clinic, and for frail or elderly patients. Routine consultations are always better carried out in the clinic.
If you anticipate needing a home visit, please call the receptionist before 12 noon to arrange it. Please note: we are only able to visit patients within a certain geographical area surrounding the clinic. Our receptionist can inform you of the details when you call.
Our doctors also regularly attend all nursing homes and assisted care facilities in the area.
