After Hours GP Helpline (via Health Direct) - www.healthdirect.gov.au/after-hours-gp-helpline
The after hours GP helpline is free (on landlines and some mobile phones) and provides you with access to a GP at night, on weekends and public holidays. When your GP is not available and you have a health concern, call the after hours GP helpline for medical advice and peace of mind. You will receive advice on what to do about your health concern and where to go if you need face-to-face care. When you call the after hours GP helpline, a registered nurse will complete an assessment and based on your symptoms the nurse may offer you a call back from a GP. The GP will contact you within 15 minutes or 1 hour depending on the severity and urgency of your health issue. If you are calling from outside of major cities the after hours GP helpline is available: - Monday to Friday 6pm – 7.30am - Saturday from midday - Sunday and Public Holidays all day. Call healthdirect on 1800 022 222 to access an after hours GP. The after hours GP helpline is not a substitute for face to face after hours care for those people who need it.
