The GP Out of Hours Service is for medical conditions of an urgent nature that cannot wait until your routine surgery re-opens.
A comprehensive range of medical services is available via our Health Access Centre.
All requests for home visits are medically assessed. Home visits are for people who are seriously ill such as bed bound, terminally ill or severely disabled. Home visits are not automatically assigned for young children, families or the elderly unless the patient is seriously ill. Our centres are equipped to provide immediate necessary treatment for conditions that cannot wait until your surgery re-opens.
