247 after-hours home doctors and what they can treat
All our after-hours doctors are registered with AHPRA and offer a vibrant personalized professional service to all patients.
As an after-hours deputizing service, we are by law only permitted to attend to non-emergencies.
Shortness of breath, Asthma, chest pain, broken limbs, overdose and temperature exceeding 38 degrees and above.) These are just a few emergency cases that would need to be seen at the ED or for the patient to call 000.
All calls are screened regardless of what method is used to book. You will be notified immediately should a booking be of concern. This will minimize any delay and in the interest of the patient’s welfare and health, lead to a positive outcome.
We value the standard and quality of care within 247 after-hours doctors and therefore would not compromise or tarnish that image because of poor clinical judgement or substandard quality assurance.
247 doctors take much pride in our doctors are highly skilled and are also able to consult with patients using the new telehealth facility which is available on your app. This facility allows the doctor to consult with you the patient remotely not needing you to leave the comfort of your home at all.
