After the successful launch of the after hours home visit doctor service in May, Doctor To Your Door, founder and GP Dominic Bannerman has made the commitment to expand their services to more suburbs throughout Newcastle.
Residents of Maitland, Raymond Terrace and Stockton can now access this service that has proved popular amongst families with young children.
Dominic set up the service initially in Townsville in 2012, before relocating to Newcastle to set up this service.
Prior to Dominic and his wife Akiko raising two young children, they both enjoyed travelling and working in a voluntary capacity to assist in developing countries, such as Uganda, India and Ecuador.
Dominic made the decision to donate 50% of profits from his business in Newcastle to charity. In the future, he would like to set up a foundation to fund a clinic in East Timor or another developing nation and to continue donating to and sponsoring local charities.
Doctor To Your Door is a free bulk billed service, available until midnight. The doctor travels to patients' homes and treats them in their own comfortable environment.
Each fully qualified and trained doctor is equipped with starter medications to assist where possible. Bookings for this service can be made by calling 1300 YOUR DOOR (1300 968 736). The service takes calls from 4pm weekdays, 10am Saturdays and all Sunday.
