Brisbane Home Doctor
If your regular GP clinic is closed and you need a home doctor in Brisbane, then House Call Doctor is what you’re looking for. Not only do our doctors treat you outside of regular office hours, they treat you in the comfort of your own home. Our service is also bulk billed to all Medicare or DVA card holders.
In most cases, our after-hours doctors will arrive in your home within 3 hours of your call. This ensures that you’ll get the medical assistance you need, even if it’s in the middle of the night. Our after-hours GPs also make house calls on weekends and public holidays so you’ll have access to medical treatment no matter what day it is.
House Call Doctor is constantly growing so we now care for Queenslanders in more locations than all other after-hours doctor services!
With House Call Doctor, you won’t just get a regular doctor – you’ll get a doctor that truly cares.

What We Can Treat
Our doctors are qualified to treat a wide variety of illnesses and ailments in your home. Some of the most common conditions that our after-hours doctors have treated include:
- General illnesses
- Colds, flu, and similar conditions
- Cuts and minor lacerations
- Severe pain
- Cases that require stitching
- Animal bites
It’s important to note, however, that we only treat category 4 or 5 conditions, which are conditions and ailments that are classified as non-life threatening and non-emergency. If you require assistance for an emergency situation, please dial 000 for immediate medical assistance.
How to Book an Appointment
Booking an appointment with a home doctor from House Call Doctor is quick and easy. All you have to do is call 13 55 66 to talk to one of our consultants and schedule an appointment. You can even book an appointment online through our website.
Please keep in mind that as much as we’d love to assist you as soon as possible, we do prioritise patients with urgent needs. Small children and the elderly also often get prioritised in our triage process as they’re more vulnerable to certain illnesses and conditions. Rest assured, however, that we’ll always get to you as soon as we can or arrive on schedule as much as possible. We’ll also keep you informed throughout the wait time, so you’ll know ahead of time if any changes in our schedule occur.
What to Expect with Your Appointment
After booking an appointment with us, all you have to do is relax and wait for one of our home doctors to visit you. Before we arrive, however, we ask that you please leave your porch light on and to restrain any pets that may interrupt our service to you.
In most cases, our after-hours doctors and their chaperones arrive in patients’ homes within 3 hours of a call. In fact, this is our standard window of arrival, with this timeframe applying to 90% of our patients. This timeframe only changes during peak hours or special cases when higher priority patients need earlier treatment.
Rest assured, however, that we’ll always keep you updated throughout your wait time. This ensures that you’re always informed about when to expect our doctor’s arrival.
If necessary, our after-hours doctors will also provide free medication that’s enough to last you for the night. We do this to help you recover as soon as possible at no additional cost to you.
After we’ve treated you, all you have to do then is to rest and follow our doctor’s instructions. Our doctors will then make a report detailing your condition and treatment (including any medication) and send it to your regular GP the next business day.
Our service is a valuable option in many cases. You can never predict when you’ll need medical treatment or assistance, so it’s always good to have this option available at all times. With our service, you can rest assured that you can get medical assistance during weeknights, majority of weekends, and even holidays. That way, when you suddenly need medical treatment in the middle of the night or during a holiday, you know who to call.
Our home doctor service is also a great alternative for those who can’t visit hospitals for whatever reason. Some patients may be too sick or too physically vulnerable to visit doctors in the hospital or their offices. House Call Doctor fills this void, treating patients not just outside regular hours, but also in their homes.
With our after-hours doctors, we also bring back that classic connection between patient and doctor. In the old days, doctors would visit patients in their homes to treat them – a true testament to personal care, compassion, and support. Our service revives this classic medical service, visiting and treating you in your home instead of you coming to us.
By itself, an after-hours GP service is always a good option to have. House Call Doctor, however, offers several benefits that easily make it your top choice for this service in Queensland:
- Bulk billed – Unlike other home doctor services, our service is completely bulk billed for all Medicare and DVA cardholders.
- Attended by medical professionals – All our doctors are qualified medical practitioners, so you can be sure that you’re getting professional assistance and treatment for whatever is ailing you. Our service is also accredited by the Federal Department of Health, ensuring our professionalism and adherence to current medical regulations.
- Quick response – In most cases, our home doctor will be able to visit you in your home within 3 hours of booking our service. This is our standard window for seeing patients, although it may be longer during peak times. Rest assured, however, that we’ll always keep you updated during your wait time so you’ll know when to expect our doctor to arrive.
- Available all night and after-hours – As an after-hours service, we’re committed to being available every night and select periods outside of regular hours. This includes the majority of weekends and holidays.
- Correspondence with your regular GP – After treating you in your home, our doctor will send a report to your regular GP to provide an update and a record of your treatment. This report will include your current condition and whatever treatment or medication was given.
- Medication – As part of our regular service, our doctors will provide as much medication as you need for the night at no additional cost to you.

We’re always looking to expand our team of home doctors, and we regularly recruit full-time and part-time doctors for after-hours shifts throughout the Brisbane area.
