Every family should have a GP that they know and trust. However, when you need urgent medical care, but your GP is closed, 13SICK, National Home Doctor Service can help. With more than 800 doctors in our team, 13SICK, National Home Doctor Service is Australia's largest network of home visiting doctors. Our Doctors treat patients with acute, episodic conditions (e.g. gastro, UTI, migraine, respiratory infections) on weeknights, weekends and public holidays. This year we will see more than 1 million patients at home and in aged care facilities.
We bulk bill all patients with a Medicare or Gold DVA card. All Doctors carry a bag stocked with starter packs of common medications, so in many cases, patients can start treatment immediately. Following the home visit, we send a medical report to the patient’s GP the next day, ensuring continuity of care.
More GPs across Australia trust 13SICK, National Home Doctor Service to care for their patients in the after hours. So, if you or a loved one needs to see a doctor urgently (and it’s not life-threatening), but your GP is closed, call 13SICK (that’s 13 7425) and save the hospital Emergency Department for emergencies.
