Our Emergency doctors are experts in their field. They can write prescriptions, order X-rays and pathology tests, refer patients to other specialists, or send them straight to the emergency department when needed. These expert doctors are Fellows of the Australasian College for Emergency Medicine, or FACEMs and are the most senior doctors who work in hospital emergency departments.
We are not here to replace your GP, who is your primary healthcare provider. We are simply here at times when your GP can’t be, as our service is 24/7. Please note, this is a telehealth service only. We do not provide home visits or in-person consultations. We also do not prescribe S8 medications. At this time, we are only able to treat people in Australia.
