How to make the most out of Home Doctor

House Call Doctor’s home doctor service is a welcome return to the traditional home doctors who would visit their patients after hours. We link home doctors with patients in Queensland and Northern New South Wales after hours, making sure everyone can receive the healthcare they need, when they need it.

Our home doctors bulk bill if you have a Medicare or Department of Veteran’s Affairs (DVA) card, even after midnight. If you are an international student, you may be able to claim the cost of an appointment, depending on your insurer.

House Call Doctor

House Call Doctor relieves the pressure on local emergency rooms, by providing after hours medical attention to patients in their own home. We see 90 per cent of our patients within 3 hours of them having made a booking.

Our home doctors are here to visit you when regular GPs and medical centres aren’t available. You can book an appointment at the following times:

Monday-Friday
6pm to 8am

Saturday
After 12pm

Sundays and Public Holidays
24 hours

We want to treat you as quickly as possible, so we only ask the most important questions. When you book, we’ll need to know:

  • Any symptoms you are experiencing
  • Your full name and date of birth
  • Your address and contact details
  • Your regular GP or medical centre, and
  • Your Medicare card or DVA Number (if the patient is not eligible for bulk billing, we will require credit card details).

Our Home Doctors

Our home doctors are not intended to replace your normal GP. Regular GPs are an important part of managing your health. Our home doctors can help you when you are sick or injured and your regular GP is closed. Once you have been treated, the home doctor will prepare a clinical report for your GP to ensure they are up to date on your healthcare needs.

Our home doctors are fully registered with the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (APHRA), as required by the Australian Medical Board. Our service operates to the standards of the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners.

When to book

Deciding whether you should visit an emergency room or see a doctor is tricky enough, especially if your regular doctor isn’t available. If your condition is life threatening, or if you are having chest pains or difficulty breathing, please dial 000 and request an ambulance.

House Call Doctor is not an emergency service. If your condition requires immediate medical attention or is severe, visit your nearest emergency room.

A home doctor can provide the appropriate treatment for more moderate conditions. These include:

  • Gastro
  • Common cold
  • Headaches or migraines
  • Physical injuries, like sprains and strains
