Hours may depend on doctor availability. With the shortage of GPs, this is becoming critical and we are unlikely to be able to staff both clinics all the time, especially if any of the doctors are away. Please call before coming.
If your situation seems like an emergency - call 000 immediately, otherwise:
If the matter is urgent / emergency, such as chest pain, call the ambulance on 000. The ambulance should respond much sooner than we can and every minute may be important.
If the matter is very URGENT and OUT OF OPENING HOURS, you can call on (03) 9900-4966* (CHARGES APPLY - $5.50 inc. GST per minute and higher charges may apply from mobile phones and / or payphones). You will be connected to one of your clinics’ doctors and can discuss the situation and decide on the best course of action. Please respect the doctors' down-time and avoid calling during the night. Real emergencies need an ambulance or an emergency department attendance.
For home visits out of hours, call a locum service such as National Home Doctor Service on 13 SICK (137425) or visit www.homedoctor.com.au. They will send us a letter about your visit
Call the After-Hours GP Helpline on 1800 022 222 for free health information and assistance from a registered nurse, or medical advice from a GP if you need it.
Attend hospital or wait till the clinic opens - we will do our best to fit you in as soon as possible.
