Home Visits and Residential Aged care

Unfortunately, Doctors at DGP had to cease providing care to Residential Aged care patients from 1st June 2022 as it was not viable.

Occasional home visits could be considered under special circumstances, under ongoing care of an existing patient whose conditions prevent them from attending the surgery.

 

Walk-in appointments

DGP uses a booking system for normal operations. We are not a ‘walk in’ clinic. Any patients who attend without an appointment will be triaged and emergency situations will be accommodated.
