Why You May Need a Home Doctor
House call doctor services are vital to the community. Some of the more vulnerable members of our society depend on after hour’s clinical care for various reasons. One of the most common reasons is that the regular GP is unavailable to attend the patients’ needs, or the doctor’s office is closed as it is outside of their normal operating hours. Some patients may also be too ill to leave their homes yet their condition is not life-threatening enough to call 000. This is why House Call Doctor is here to meet this need and provide treatment in the comfort of your home.
Doctors You Can Trust
House Call Doctor is a Medical deputising service that has been accredited by the Federal Department of Health under the AMDS program. All of our after hours doctors are fully trained and qualified to give patients medical advice and treatment. All of our doctors are local to the Toowoomba area and they will treat every patient with courtesy and respect when visiting them in their own homes.
The Types of Conditions Our After Hours Doctors Can Treat
