What We Can Treat

As a medical deputising service, we’re authorised to treat category 4 or 5 medical conditions, which are classified as non-life threatening and non-emergency conditions. Some of the most common conditions that our patients typically use our home doctor service for include:

  • General illnesses
  • Colds and the Flu
  • Trauma and severe pain
  • Minor cuts
  • Lacerations that require stitching
  • Animal bites

It’s important to remember that we cannot treat emergencies and other life-threatening conditions. If you need immediate medical assistance, then please dial 000 to get proper emergency treatment.

The Advantage of a Home Doctor

If you need to receive medical assistance after hours, a home doctor is your best option.

This is especially true when you need treatment outside of your regular GP’s office hours or if you simply are not able to get to a doctor’s clinic during the day.

Receiving medical treatment at home not only saves you time and effort but, in some cases, also money. Home treatment is also particularly helpful for those who can’t comfortably leave their homes, such as those who have mobility issues or those in aged care homes.

Because you can never predict when an illness or ailment will strike, a home doctor service will always be needed so that medical treatment can be provided at any time of day or night.

Why Choose House Call Doctor

As great as home doctors are, the fact is not all services are the same. How well you recover and what your experience is like will depend on who you’re hiring to treat you. Here’s why we believe House Call Doctor in Ipswich will always be your best and most reliable choice:

Professional Doctors

When it comes to after hours GPs in Ipswich, our doctors are among the best in the industry. All of our doctors are qualified and certified medical professionals who have the experience and expertise to treat whatever’s ailing you. Our doctors are also friendly and approachable, and will do whatever they can to make your treatment as comfortable and positive as possible.

Personal Home Treatment

After booking an appointment with us, one of our doctors will personally visit you in your home and treat you there. The comfort that our home doctor service provides is undeniable. Not only can it help you rest and relax before and after treatment, but it may even help you recover faster too. Getting treated at home also allows you to focus on getting better.

Quick Response Times

In most cases, our home doctor and an accompanying chaperone will arrive at your home within three hours of your call. Thanks to our quick response time, you can ensure that you won’t have to wait the whole night (or the whole day on weekends) before getting the assistance you need. Aside from this, we will also keep you updated throughout your wait time, so you will always be informed of when our after hours doctor will arrive.

Available Every Day (Even Holidays)

Because illness and injury can strike at any day, we make sure that you can get medical support from us every day, including holidays. This way, you’re able to get the assistance you need from a home doctor no matter what day of the week it is.

Booking an appointment with one of our after hours doctors is fast, simple, and easy.

To make a booking, all you have to do is call 13 55 66 and our professional calls team will dispatch a home doctor to your door right away. Alternatively, you can also book an appointment online through our website.

We can take your calls starting 4pm on weekdays, 10am on Saturdays, and all day on Sundays and public holidays.

After booking an appointment with one of our house call doctors in Ipswich, you can expect our doctor to arrive within 3 hours of your call. This is our standard wait time for 90% of our patients, although it may take longer during peak times. Please keep in mind that we normally prioritise patients with more urgent needs and those who are more vulnerable (i.e. small children and the elderly). Rest assured, however, that we’ll always try to reach you as soon as we can and, in most cases, we will arrive within our standard 3-hour timeframe.

While you wait, we will also regularly update you about when you can expect our after hours doctors to arrive. Therefore, you can trust that you will stay informed throughout your wait time. Once our home doctor arrives at your premises, they will administer the right treatment for your condition. The doctor who treated you will also send a condition report to your regular GP the following business day.
