The clinic often provides a wider range of services than the after-hours home doctors. For example the clinic can perform minor surgery and take some pathology samples.You will be seen by one of our loyal team of local doctors and your own General Practitioner will be contacted the next day.
We provide care and advice and treatment for health issues in the After Hours period that do not require a trip to the local emergency department. We deal with common health problems and illnesses that may develop suddenly such as gastro bugs, viral infections, colds and flu. We can perform minor procedures and suturing for minor accidents and injuries. These procedures are rarely done by Home Doctors.
