If you or someone you know unexpected symptoms or are feeling acutely unwell, it can be difficult to know who to call. This service is specifically for the after hours period or for some people, like the elderly or those with preexisting conditions, times when you might normally attend an Emergency Department but may not be able to in the current environment.
My Emergency Doctor is not a replacement for your GP or the ambulance service. If a patient is unconscious, has chest pain, difficulty breathing, uncontrolled bleeding or has been in a major accident, please dial 000 immediately.
If you live within a geographical catchment area of a Primary Health Network that has an agreement with us, a consultation with My Emergency Doctor may be appropriate if your or the patient experience any of the following conditions for immediate care:
- Abdominal Pain
- Headache/ Head Injury / Concussion
- Rashes, bites and stings
- Back pain
- Sore Throat
- Diarrhoea and Vomiting
- Acute Injury
- Urinary Tract Infections
- Allergic reactions
- Sports injuries
- Work injuries
While connecting to our service you will be promoted to fill in your partner code, which is the postcode of the area you reside in.
