What happens when you book an appointment with 247 doctor;
Your call will be received by an efficient call taker who will receive the necessary information, triage your call, notify you if he/she deems it to be an emergency or book you in immediately for one of the 247 doctors to see you as soon as possible.
The doctor will receive the dispatch information on his phone and will head off in your direction. The after-hours doctor is at most times accompanied by a chaperone. They work together as an efficient team.
You could expect delays due to bad weather or during a busy time more so when there is an outbreak such as measles or the flu, so please be patient. You will nevertheless be notified at random intervals of the wait time via sms or a call from our call centre.
Since all calls are triaged, priority will also be given to infants and the elderly. One other delay that might also come up is the instance a call is in the same vicinity as the current case the doctor is attending to. It is only common sense to attend to that case and then move on.
