After hours care
Health Direct has an after-hours GP helpline that will let you speak with a GP for medical assessment and advice.
If you need medical advice outside our consulting hours, you can call Health Direct Australia on 1800 022 222.
Care required outside our consulting hours is delivered through National Home Doctor Service. You can call them on 13SICK (13 74 25).
The service is free to you – all clients are bulk billed, which means the cost is covered by Medicare.
You will need to provide:
- Your Medicare card number
- The name of your care provider at Nunkuwarrin Yunti
National Home Doctor Service will write to your care provider with information about the service they gave you.
This is so your care provider can contact you for follow up if necessary, and so that we can ensure your personal health record is kept up to date.
Contacting your care provider
You can enquire about your health care at any time during consulting hours. As we have many clients, your care provider may be with someone else and unavailable to speak with you at that time.
In this case, we will make sure they call you back as soon as possible. If the matter is urgent, we will find another care provider that will be able to help you.
Unfortunately, we cannot send any medical information to you by email.
How to give us feedback or make a complaint
We are always looking for new ways to improve our services and make sure that our clients receive the best care every time. If you have a suggestion, or are unhappy with a service, you can complete either of these forms Suggestions or Complaints, alternatively you can ask our staff for a ‘Feedback’ or ‘Complaints’ form. If you would like more information on our feedback and complaints process, you can read our ‘Client Complaints & Feedback’ brochure. The brochure is available at both our clinics, and downloadable here.
