AFTERHOURS – NATIONAL HOME DOCTOR SERVICE

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 can help. With more than 400 doctors in our team, 13SICK, National Home Doctor 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 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.

What We Give Back To Society

Thank you for supporting our clinic by being part of our community and patient base. From 2015 we have been proud sponsors of and avid supporters of children in sport across many disciplines. As parents ourselves we recognise the importance of active body, active minds and promoting healthy living from a young age.

Many of the clubs, teams and individuals we have sponsored over the years have excelled to win premierships or be selected as representatives of QLD, Australia and even New Zealand.

Among the young athletes have been many that have travelled both Nationally and Internationally to a vast range of locations. We always encourage those that have travelled to countries where children are less fortunate than themselves to share the experience by providing them with care packages and sports equipment for those children.

Additionally we also support teens, adults and seniors in Netball, Rugby Union, Basketball, Hockey, Equestrian and V8 supercars.
