Why choose to partner with a deputising service?

Medical Deputising Services provide urgent, after-hours primary health care to patients at home and in aged care facilities, on behalf of the patient’s regular GP. This ensures that patients have 24-hour access to quality primary care, even when their GP is closed.

Working as a complementary service to General Practice, we ensure continuity of care for patients. Our Doctors send a patient report through to the patient’s usual GP so they are kept informed of the home visit. Our service encourages all patients to maintain a strong relationship with a family GP, recognising that this is critical for lifelong health.
