Coffs Harbour is a thriving beachside city situated on the eastern coastline almost half way between Sydney and Brisbane. With a population of 45,000 and thousands of visitors passing through the city every year, the Coffs Harbour region’s demand for skilled, friendly and professional home doctors is constantly rising.

House Call Doctors are bringing urgent after hours primary health care to Coffs Harbour. Our treatment is bulk billed and provided in the comfort of your own home.

Whether you’re a student living on campus at the Southern Cross University, a visitor to the Big Banana Fun Park or the region’s many national parks, or a Coffs Harbour or Sawtell local, House Call Doctor has an after hours GP that can come to you.

Consultation Hours

Are you unable to make time to book an appointment within your GP’s regular visiting hours? Have you become ill or injured in the middle of the night or on a public holiday and can’t find a doctor’s office that’s open? Are you a shift worker who isn’t awake during regular business hours? Do you have kids you can’t leave at home while you go to an after hours doctor’s clinic? If you answered yes to any of these questions, then House Call Doctor is for you.

Our after hours doctors can travel to your home to attend to your medical needs during the following hours:

Monday to Friday: 6 pm to 8 am

Saturday: from 12 pm through to Sunday

Sunday: all day

Public holidays: 24 hours

Call 13 55 66 to speak to one of our friendly consultants. They’ll ask you a few quick questions and let you know if House Call Doctors service your area and can treat your condition.


Find out if we service your area by simply typing your suburb or postcode into the box at the top right of our website. If we have a doctor available to your area, you can then book an appointment online.

Your doctor and their chaperone will then be sent out to you. In 90% of cases, they will arrive within three hours of your call. We will contact you while you wait with any updates about their estimated time of arrival, as well as place a courtesy call to you when they reach you.

We strive to dispatch our doctors to your residence or holiday accommodation as soon as possible. However, it is important to know that House Call Doctor gives patients with urgent needs priority. Small children and elderly patients are more vulnerable to particular illnesses and conditions and are usually prioritised in our triage process.

From the northern coast areas of Woolgoolga and Safety Beach to Upper Orara and Coramba in the west, to Bellingen down south, and everywhere in between, our team of after hours doctors can come to you.

If you’re visiting one of the many coastal resorts, camping in the national parks, or enjoying a hinterland bed and breakfast in the Coffs Harbour area, without House Call Doctor you may struggle to find a GP that is available to see you outside of regular practice hours.

Save yourself the hassle of having to drive all the way to the Coffs Harbour Base Hospital if you fall ill in the middle of the night. Give House Call Doctor a call and find out if we have a doctor available to dispatch to your location.

Our home doctors can treat category 4 or 5 conditions that are considered non-life threatening. The ailments we can provide medical assistance for include (but are not limited to):

  • Cold and flu symptoms
  • Trauma that may require stitches
  • General illnesses
  • Minor lacerations
  • Animal bites
  • Severe pain

Our experienced doctors can also assist patients with postoperative care, wound treatment, and catheterisation where necessary.
Do you need your House Call Doctor treatment details communicated to your family doctor? Just request a consultation report and we’ll forward it to your regular GP the next business day.

What to Expect During Your Home Visit

If you’ve never had a home doctor visit before you may be unsure about how it works. Thankfully, House Call Doctor appointments involve a lot less hassle than attending a day time doctor’s clinic. The process is simple:

  1. Book your appointment over the phone on 13 55 66 or online
  2. Get your Medicare or DVA card ready, turn on your front light and make sure if your pets may interrupt the consultation they are restrained.
  3. When your doctor and their chaperone arrive, your doctor will conduct the appointment just like a regular visit to the doctor.
  4. Follow the doctor’s instructions and rest up until you’re better.
  5. House Call Doctor will electronically transfer, fax, or post a detailed consultation report the day following your visit

If, while you wait, your condition worsens or you need emergency medical attention do not hesitate to call emergency services on 000.

Why House Call Doctor is right for you

Bulk Billed

Finding a doctor that bulk bills can be tricky. GPs often only offer bulk billing to students, pensioners, or concession card holders.

At House Call Doctor we bulk bill all of our call outs, as long as you have a Medicare or DVA card on hand.

There’s no need to spend time calling around looking for a bulk billing after hours doctor when you’re unwell. Just call House Call Doctors on 13 55 66



If you’re in desperate need of medication, our after hours GPs can supply you with enough medication to help you between the time you’re seen and the time you can get to your regular doctor.

This medication is administered at no cost to you.

Feel free to enquire about the types of emergency medication our home doctors stock when you book your call out.
