Can my own GP continue to visit me?

Yes, your family doctor may continue to care for you, visiting you in the home as necessary. If you have moved outside your doctor’s area, it may be necessary for you to register with another GP. You may choose to avail of the services of the GP who provides regular service to residents within the home. That is your personal choice.

Your GP is a central member of the clinical care team and therefore it is important to arrange your GP support prior to admission as the GP needs to be involved on admission.

The home has a GP available 24 hours a day for emergency care on a call out service.
