247 Doctors, is a professional Medical Deputizing service with a strong medical ethos.
247 Doctors are well trained and offer a very high standard of care. Our General Practitioners are registered with The Australian Health Practitioner Regulatory Agency (AHPRA) and can treat all non-threatening emergencies.
There is no out of pocket expense. It is 100% Bulk Billed, provided you have a Medicare , DVA or OSHC card.
Service Delivery – You would reasonably be seen within 2 hours of the call booking. Mackay is a relatively large area with a diverse disease profile and industry portfolio.
A starter pack of medications are also available upon request at the same price you would pay at a pharmacy (conditions apply)

- Ear ache
- Postoperative care

Any Chest pain, children with temperatures above 38 degrees with GE and dehydration will need to be taken to the ED or call 000
All treatment will be professionally and confidentially documented during the after-hours visit and should you require a copy to be sent to your GP for his/her records, it will be done.
When you book an appointment with 247, your call will be received by one of our dedicated and efficient call takers who will receive the necessary information to be dispatched through to one of our friendly doctors.
The doctor will receive your details and along with a chaperone attend to your case within a reasonable timeframe. There are times when either during bad weather, an outbreak of the flu or the odd busy shift, there might be a shift in response times, you will be notified via an sms or phone call to notify you of the delay.
Although all the cases we treat are non-emergencies, calls and online booking are still screened and triaged, meaning that in some instances, there might be one taking priority over the other depending on the circumstance at the time. Another element in a delay would be that a doctor is in a specific area and is driving through a specific neighbourhood where a booking is. It would only be logical to quickly attend to the booking in question. In Most instances, children and the elderly take precedence over all other cases.
Should there be a change in the condition of a patient from the time the booking is being done, please call us back to notify the operator. This would further prevent someone else from experiencing a delay due to a wasted trip to your home.
The 247 doctor will arrive at your door, treat your condition, issue you with a pre-pack medical treatment and advice. All your medical history and treatment will be put into the 247 app which is highly confidential and your records could be automatically viewed by your regular GP at his convenience.

We are 100% bulk billed- ensure you have your Medicare, DVA or private health card/ documents at hand when booking. Ensure the correct numbers are placed in your booking with expiry dates and names all correct.
The doctor will attend to you no matter where you are. It doesn’t necessarily have to be in your home. It could be at a caravan park, theme park, in your car should roads be inaccessible or truck on the side of the road, provided it is safe for our doctors and for you. We will come to you!! These are the extreme cases, however generally we come to your home. There is no need for you to leave your home after-hours to seek medical attention for any non-life threatening illness or injury. 247 Doctor has dedicated doctors willing to treat you in the comfort of your home.
Being ill and waiting in a waiting room with other ill people is more detrimental to your health than a simple booking for an after-hours doctor to visit you at home. You are safe guarding yourself against other susceptible infections out there, therefore make the call now!!
The doctor who has treated you will notify your regular GP of all findings and update him/her on the necessary treatment given and further follow ups if required.
