If you or your family need a doctor after hours, when your regular GP is closed, NATIONAL HOME DOCTOR SERVICE can help. We are Australia’s largest network of after hours doctors, with a team of doctors across Australia providing bulk billed, after hours care to patients at home and in aged care facilities. The doctors provide urgent medical care to patients of all ages, treating a range of illnesses including gastro, fever, croup, middle ear infections, chest infections and sporting injuries.
Once you book a doctor, it usually takes between 2-3 hours for the doctor to arrive at your home. The doctor will send a clinical report to your GP the following day, so they are kept in the loop. And the home visiting doctor has starter packs of commonly prescribed medications, so in many instances, you can start treatment immediately.
National Home Doctor Service bulk bills all patients who have a Medicare or Gold DVA card, so there is nothing to pay for the home visit.
Our service provides the community with access to urgent medical care at night, on the weekends, and on public holidays, whenever your regular GP is closed. Our doctors are on the road from:
National Home Doctor Service helps to relieve the burden on Emergency Departments, by saving patients with non life-threatening illnesses from making a trip to hospital.
Of course, if it is an emergency, then we advise you to go to hospital. For routine consultations, we recommend patients attend their regular GP. But if you or a loved one need to see a doctor urgently, and cannot wait until your regular GP re-opens, then National Home Doctor Service can help.
