Home doctor

House Call Doctor’s home doctor service offers a team of professional and fully trained doctors who visit patients after-hours. Our home doctors deliver extensive care to ensure their patients across Queensland and Northern New South Wales receive the medical care they require. With our bulk billing option, those who have a Medicare or DVA card won’t need to suffer from out-of-pocket expenses.

What you need to know

House Call Doctor provides extensive medical attention to patients in the comfort of their own home. Our after-hours home doctor service operates 7 days a week:

  • Monday-Friday 6pm to 8am
  • Saturday after 12pm
  • 24 hours on Sundays and Public Holidays

We only ask the important questions, so you can be quickly and appropriately treated. When booking, have these details ready:

  • The patient’s full name and date of birth
  • The patient’s Medicare card or DVA Number (if the patient is not eligible for bulk billing, we will require credit card details)
  • The patient’s address and contact details
  • The patient’s regular GP or clinic, and
  • Any symptoms the patient is experiencing.

We pride ourselves on seeing 90% of patients within 3 hours of booking.

Our Home Doctors

House Call Doctor does not replace your normal GP. Our service complements your usual health management by assisting and treating your illness or injuries when your regular GP is closed. Once your at-home appointment is finished, the home doctor will prepare a clinical report for your GP to ensure continuation of care.

All of our home doctors are fully registered with the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency as required by the Australian Medical Board. The House Call Doctor service operates to the standards of the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners.

When to book

Unsure whether to see a doctor or visit an emergency department, especially when your regular doctor is closed for the day? If the patient’s condition is life threatening, or if the patient is having difficulty breathing or is experiencing chest pains, dial 000 and request an ambulance immediately.

If the condition is severe or requires immediate attention, visit your nearest emergency department.

For any non-life-threatening conditions, a home doctor can provide the appropriate treatment. These include:

  • Physical injuries, for example sprains and strains
  • Fever
  • Headaches or migraines
  • Gastro
  • Common cold.
