The My Emergency Dr is a 24-hours-a-day medical service that connects patients anywhere in Australia to Specialist Emergency Doctors. Our doctors provide an online emergency consultation, including prescriptions, x-ray and pathology referrals.
The service has been developed by a group of leading Australian emergency department doctors as a way to improve access to emergency care for all Australians wherever they live, and help alleviate pressure on public hospital Emergency Departments. My Emergency Dr is Australian-owned and operated and is not reliant on government funding. While the App is free to download, each consultation is paid for by the patient or a partner organisation.
Please note that this is not a replacement for the emergency 000 service. If the patient has a time-critical emergency such as chest pain or difficulty breathing, call 000 without delay.
Please also note that this is not a replacement for GP visits. As emergency physicians, we do not manage longer term health issues (such as monitoring chronic conditions, developing holistic care plans, medication management, etc).
