Family Medicine at Duchess
The Family Medicine and Urgent Care Clinics are the first port of call for most patients entering the hospital. The clinics offer a broad range of In-House and Out-of-Hours (OOH) services.
As specialists in general practice, our family physicians are available to care for a wide range of health needs of patients irrespective of gender or age.
Our clinics are structured, and well-organised, with the advance booking of appointments between 9 am and 5 pm.
Our unique Urgent Care Centre (UCC) facilities offer a full complement of urgent primary care services on a “walk-in” basis from 5 pm until 9 am. The Urgent Care Center primarily treat injuries or illnesses requiring immediate care but not severe enough to require an emergency room visit.
Why choose us?
- The clinics offer a combined family medicine service, available 24 hours a day (Monday to Sunday) throughout the year.
- Patients attending these clinics receive the highest standards of care.
- Attention is prompt and without delay. Patients requiring specialist medical attention are referred to the most appropriate clinician or on-call specialist service.
