Home visits can be arranged for patients whose condition prevents them from attending the surgery, at the discretion of the treating Doctor. Home visits are available for our regular patients only and usually only within 4 kms of the Medical Centre.
The requirement for a home visit will be assessed by your regular doctor, as it may be more appropriate for you to gain more urgent attention at an emergency department or, wherever possible, at the surgery. This ensures more timely attention, with full resources available for your care.
There are additional fees for home visits. These services are not bulk – billed. A GAP amount is payable at the time of the home visit. The rest of the account is then sent to Medicare and a cheque made payable to the doctor will be issued and sent to the patients home. The patient can then forward the pay doctor cheque to the surgery.
