House Call Doctor is an Australian owned and managed, 100% bulk billed, urgent after-hours in-home doctor service for all Medicare and DVA card holders.

House Call Doctor practitioners are highly trained and qualified and can treat a wide variety of illnesses and ailments in the comfort of the patient's home after-hours, even on weekends and public holidays.

Common conditions treated by after-hours doctors include general illnesses; colds, flu and similar conditions; cuts and minor lacerations; severe pain; cases that require stitching and animal bites.

This service is designed to take a load off the already busy emergency departments in hospitals by treating patients with non-life threatening conditions in their own homes.

In most cases, the doctor and their chaperone will arrive at a patient's home within 3 hours of a call. As part of the service, free medication will be provided to the patient to relieve pain and symptoms overnight and a report will be sent to their regular GP the next day, noting their condition and the treatment they were given.

House Call Doctor is available across Brisbane and you can easily book online, via the free app or by calling 13 55 66.

Please note House Call Doctor only treat category 4 or 5 conditions, which are conditions and ailments that are classified as non-life threatening and non-emergency. If you require assistance for an emergency situation, please dial 000 for immediate medical assistance.

Your Comment
Although initially sceptical, I recently had cause to use this service.
The Doctor arrived 40 mins after I called .
I was very impressed with the quality of the Doctor.
He took the time to listen, had a caring bedside manner, and applied the appropriate treatment.
And it was all bulk-billed!.
I can certainly understand why this service is invaluable for families, especially with smaller children, and with the less mobile members of our community.
I believe the current government are intending to pull the plug, so please support the continuation of this important service.
And no, I'm not associated in any way, I just believe it's a really worthy Service.
