HOUSE CALLS & HOMECARE VISITS
When necessary, house calls will be made for our regular patients who live in the immediate area. Nursing staff will be able to assess the urgency of the visit.
If nursing staff assess the situation as being an emergency, they will assist you or your family in arranging an ambulance.
The following nursing/rest homes are visited regularly by members of this practice:
- Trevu Nursing Home
- Southern Cross Hostel
- Wheatfields Inc.
- Eldercare Gawler
The Gawler Health Service has no doctors on staff; patients can be admitted by GPs with admitting rights and who can visit their own patients.
Hyde and Partners doctors staff a roster to provide care for regular patients of the practice. In-patients at the Gawler Health Service may not be visited by their regular GP from Hyde and Partners every day
Your understanding in responsibly using this emergency service so that it can remain available for any emergency patients in need of urgent emergency medical intervention is appreciated.

Hyde and Partners is open for appointments between 8am and 5:30pm weekdays.
Medical services outside these times are provided by several doctors from local medical centres including Hyde and Partners and an organisation called GP Inc. which staffs an after-hours GP Clinic based at the Gawler Health Service.
GP Inc. is a private service and will render you a fee for any services provided. There is no guarantee that you will see a doctor from your own practice; the after-hours GP Clinic service is staffed on a rotating roster.
The after-hours GP Clinic service at the Gawler Health Service operates from 6pm to 10pm each weeknight, 12pm to 10pm on Saturdays and 9am to 10pm on Sundays. The GP Clinic only deals with minor medical issues (triage category 3-5). Any serious medical issues (triage category 1-2) will be referred to the 24-hour accident and emergency service, which operates at the Gawler Health Service.
Hyde and Partners provides an after-hours service on-site at Hyde and Partners Medical Centre for emergency treatment only between 9am to 12pm on Saturdays until the GP Clinic at the Gawler Health Service opens. Any serious medical issues (triage category 1-2) will be referred to the emergency service at the Gawler Health Service.
Any patients presenting in triage categories 3-5 after 10pm when the GP Clinic closes will be assessed by a nurse and advised to make an appointment to see their normal GP the following day. After 10pm, only serious medical conditions (triage category 1-2) will be treated by the 24 hour emergency service.
