St John Cockburn provides a locum service for those patients who require a home visit after hours. During the clinic opening hours, the Practice GPs will offer home visits at their discretion.
Doctors will offer home visits when it is appropriate, depending on the circumstances and considering the safety of all staff.
To obtain a home visit during clinic hours it needs to be safe and reasonable for the GP and within a 5km radius of the clinic. When the patient is triaged and a home or other visit is deemed neither safe nor reasonable, a telephone consultation will be offered.
