If you are sick at night, weekends or Public holidays you can contact Home Doctor Service 13SICK – 13 74 25 – for medical attention. Their website is www.homedoctor.com.au. Details of all calls and/or visits are conveyed to us to ensure the optimum continuity of care. An alternative to this arrangement is to attend St Andrews Priority Emergency Centre on Wickham Tce, City Telephone: 07 38344455 or The Wesley 24-hour Priority Emergency Centre Chasley Street, Auchenflower Ph: 32327333.

Public Hospitals go straight to the Emergency Department for Lady Cilento Children’s Hospital (LCCH), Royal Brisbane & Women’s Adult Hospital (RBWH) or The Prince Charles Hospital (TPCH) for both Adult and Children.
Home visits are only available if you are a regular patient of our practice and are too sick to come to the surgery. Every effort will be made to accommodate your choice of doctor however this will depend on the availability of doctors at the time of your request. In the event that a mutually suitable arrangement cannot be made, please take advantage of the After Hours Service – Home Doctor Service or present to the RBH, PCH, LCCH, St. Andrew’s or Wesley Hospitals. All home visits will be privately billed.
As we are committed to your care it is necessary for patients to make appointments in order to have prescriptions written, irrespective of whether the prescription is part of an ongoing treatment. Please feel free to discuss this policy with the doctor if you have any concerns.
