Home Visits and Telephone Access

This practice provides a home visiting service to patients of the practice who reside in the local area - this area extends to The Gap, Ashgrove, Keperra, Ferny Grove, Ferny Hills and Bardon. The service is to provide care to patients too sick or infirm to attend the surgery and in emergencies. Doctors are available by phone to discuss urgent matters, which should be notified to reception to allow a prompt response. If the matter is life threatening please ring the 000 first.


Test Results

The doctor will only contact you if results require futher action. New privacy regulations came into effect on 12th March 2014. Reception staff are unable to provide results to patients over the telephone or the front counter. You may

a) request a print out of your results from the receptionist, who will have the doctor or nurse print the results

b) make an appointment with the doctor.

Owing to time constraints the doctor will not routinely contact you about normal or insignificant results.

Reminder System

This practice uses a computerised recall service as part of its commitment to preventive care. Patient's requirements are entered into the system and periodic notification made to patients on the need for immunisation, blood pressure, skin checks, cervical smear and other surveillance. If you do not wish to receive a reminder, please notify your doctor.


Nursing Services

At this practice, nurses also provide services to our patients and support to our doctors. These include monitoring & advice for people with diabetes, heart disease, health information, infant vaccinations, spirometry, ECGs, 24hr ambulatory blood pressure checks and wound dressings.
