Available All Night
Our home doctor service is available all night every night, just as any good after hours GP service should be. We know that illnesses and ailments can occur at any time, so it’s important to be able to treat you no matter what time of the night it is. This means you can get treatment from us even if it’s well past midnight or even in the early morning.
As an accredited home doctor service, we’re authorised to treat category 4 or 5 conditions, which are classified as non-emergency and non-life threatening. These are conditions that would benefit from medical treatment and supervision but don’t require immediate attention and care. Some of the common conditions that our patients typically call us in for include:
- General illness and pain
- Colds and the flu
- Minor cuts and lacerations
- Minor trauma requiring stitches
- Animal bites
Aside from these, our doctors can also conduct a variety of postoperative care activities such as treating wounds and performing catheterisation.
Please keep in mind that we cannot treat emergency and life-threatening conditions. If your case is an emergency, please dial 000 to get immediate medical assistance.
With House Call Doctor, you can expect professional medical care that’s fast, professional, and reliable.
It all starts with a simple booking with one of our home doctors in Gladstone. To book an appointment, just dial 13 55 66 to schedule an appointment with one of our consultants. You can also book an appointment online if you prefer. Once you’ve booked an appointment, all you have to do is relax and wait for one of our doctors to visit you. In most cases, this would be within 3 hours of your call.
Although we always strive to get to you as soon as we can, there are times when waiting times may be longer, especially during peak periods or if high-priority patients (i.e. small children, the elderly, those with more urgent conditions) are on our list. Rest assured, however, that we’ll always keep you updated throughout the waiting period so you’ll know when to expect the arrival of our doctor and chaperone.
Upon arrival, our doctor will then treat your condition and provide enough medication to last you the night. After this, simply follow our doctor’s advice and instructions, which may include taking any provided medication or following up with your regular GP afterwards.
Our after hours doctor will then send a treatment report to your regular GP on the next business day. This keeps your regular GP updated with whatever treatment and medication you received, allowing him/her to adjust your treatment as needed.
