Our Service:

Dial a Doctor is a fully accredited and established after hours service provider that has been operating for several years in Cairns, Queensland and more recently in Perth, Western Australia. Our service is at the forefront of after hours care in Australia - providing a high quality and reliable service to those in need. We have a large team of excellent GPs on the road, ready to visit you in your own home.

Our service operates in following manner:

  • Patients who are unwell can ring our call centre and book a call.
  • We take calls from everyone - people who have a Medicare or Veterans Affairs Card are bulk billed so the service is free. International tourists are charged a call out fee which can be claimed on travel insurance.
  • Once the call centre receptionists have booked the call it is sent out to our doctor/driver teams on the road.
  • The doctor/driver teams attend the calls.
  • The patient is treated and we offer a range of services.
  • If the patient is in need of any medications we can provide them with a script.
  • The doctor's bags have a supply of common medications so if the chemists are shut or the patient finds it difficult to leave the house the doctors can leave them with a starter pack.
  • The doctors can order blood tests or x-rays.
  • If necessary we can supply patients with a referral to the hospital.

FAQs

  • Can I book a doctor for tomorrow or next week?

    The provision of after hours service is governed by Medicare regulations, which do not allow us to take the bookings beyond today. If you would like to book a call for the future you will need to ring on that day.

  • Can I make a booking for more than one person?

    Yes. We will need the name, date of birth and Medicare number for each person.

  • What if I can't get to a chemist/pharmacy?

    Our doctors carry some commonly used medications and dressings with them that they may dispense if you require medication for the evening and following morning.

  • What if I don't have a Medicare card?

    If you do not have a Medicare card, but are eligible for it, you would need to call Medicare (open 24 hours a day) on 13 2011 to obtain your Medicare card number and then the doctor will be able to attend to you with no charge.

  • How much does the service cost?

    The service is completely bulk billed - as long as you have a Medicare card or DVA card the service is free.

  • How long does it take for a doctor to come see me?

    This depends on how busy we are on the night. We aim to see all patients within 3 hours, however we can usually attend to you in a much shorter time than this! There are times however when call numbers are unpredictably high and in these rare circumstances wait times may be longer.

  • Can I get a script?

    Yes, our doctors can write you a script. Our doctor will assess you and supply you with the prescription as necessary. Our doctors also carry a large number of commonly used medications that can be offered to you as a starter pack should you not be able to get to the pharmacy straight away.
