Why you may need to access our after-hours doctor service
Our house call doctor service is ideal for patients who require ongoing treatment for their condition. If you are in this situation, your regular GP is often unable to service your needs after hours.

Our medical service is also vital for anyone who experiences an injury or falls ill outside of business hours and needs treatment. You don’t need to wait until the morning for your clinic to open or head to your local hospital Emergency Department for treatment. If your condition is non-life threatening, give us a call and we can provide you with the medical treatment you need.
Doctors you can trust
At House Call Doctor, our medical deputising service is accredited by the Federal Department of Health under the AMDS program. You can always expect respect and courtesy when you are visited by one of our Forest Lake home doctors. With full training and qualifications, our doctors will give you the right treatment for your condition.

What to expect when you book an After Hours Doctor appointment
If you need medical treatment after hours in Forest Lake, give us a call and a doctor will turn up to treat you in no time. The process is so easy!
Call us on 13 55 66 to make a booking and our highly trained professional calls team will pass your details to a home doctor. Once your doctor is advised of your condition, they will be dispatched to you with a chaperone. Our calls team will also advise how long it will take for our doctor to arrive at your residence. More than 90% of our patients are attended to within three hours of their call. If the call is made during a peak period, please note that the wait could be longer.
Our calls team will also keep you informed during the wait time and confirm when the doctor has arrived at your door. We will keep you informed every step of the way until the doctor has arrived at your premises.
We also give priority to urgent needs patients. Priority is determined through the triage process and often results in small children and the elderly receiving priority. It is also important to keep us updated on your condition if it worsens. If you feel your condition has become life-threatening, however, please give emergency services a call on 000 for an ambulance to attend to you urgently.
When your home doctor and chaperone arrive at your house or hotel, you will receive appropriate treatment for your condition and enough medication to sustain you through the night. These medical services are provided at no cost to the patient. After your treatment is administered, our doctor will send a treatment report to your regular doctor the following business day.
