Where can I go for after-hours care?

If you are feeling sick or unwell, always contact your medical centre first.

Please don't head to the hospital emergency department unless it's truly an emergency.

Your GP's after-hours response team will help you assess the best treatment and next steps when you or someone close to you is in pain or feeling unwell.

Being prepared

If you have ongoing medical concerns make sure you are always prepared outside of normal business hours.

  • Do you have enough medicine and supplies to cover weekends and public holidays?
  • Are you up to date with your tests and other health needs?
  • Do you know the opening hours of your practice? Use our practice directory to check.
  • Do you know where the closest after-hours medical centre is?
