Welcome to DOCTOR HOME VISITS
Doctor Home Visits is a service provided by The Western Australian Deputising Medical Service (WADMS) and exists solely to offer patients home medical care both in-hours and after-hours on behalf of their own GP.
‘Doctors Working For Doctors' has been our motto since our inception 37 years ago and it is one that we firmly stand by still today. Our board of members is made up entirely of well-respected doctors who donate their time and experience to maintain an ethical and professional locum service, for the benefit of Perth’s population.
As a non-profit co-operative, we are one of the oldest locum services located in Perth. As well as this, Doctor Home Visits is the only locum service open 24 hours, 365 days of the year.
Our staff takes pride in providing the best possible service to all of our members. Not only do we consistently provide the highest level of care to all of our patients, but we are always expanding our visiting boundary and increasing our roster of locum doctors to meet the needs of a growing Perth community.
Doctor Home Visits is also recognised and has been duly accredited to full Australian General Practice Accreditation Limited (AGPAL) standards.
If you find yourself with an unexpected illness and are unable to visit your regular GP during surgery hours, please contact your surgery first and they will be able to arrange a home visit where necessary on your behalf. When your surgery is closed, however, simply call us directly on 9321 9133. Our call centre staff is waiting to take your call and assist with providing the convenience of being seen by a doctor - in the comfort of your own home or care facility.
