Nursing Home Care
Dr O'Reilly makes regular visits to local residential aged care facilities in Dalby.
The Australian Medical Association states "the growing size of the aged population in Australia demands that policy makers, health professionals and aged care providers consider the opportunities available to ensure that older Australians receive the best care possible regardless of the location at which the care is provided. There is a significant range of barriers facing General Practitioners (GPs) who care for patients in residential aged care facilities (RACFs). These barriers have led to a situation where fewer GPs are prepared to visit facilities, causing a critical shortage of GP services within some facilities."
Dr O'Reilly has made the effort to overcome the barriers. Dr O'Reilly is willing to see any Western Downs Health Centre patient while in a local residential aged care facility.
He provides this service through Bulk Billing.
