Phone doc­tor ser­vice avail­able

Maroochy Weekly - - NEWS -

CALL My Doc­tor com­menced in the Sun­shine Coast to Mary­bor­ough re­gion last week.

The ser­vice is avail­able from 6am to mid­night ini­tially.

If there is enough de­mand, it will grow to a 24-hour ser­vice.

Call My Doc­tor al­lows res­i­dents to call an Aus­tralian regis­tered GP seven days a week, for a con­sul­ta­tion for non-life-threat­en­ing ail­ments.

This is a pay-for-fee ser­vice.

Each con­sul­ta­tion costs $55.

By phon­ing 13 47 11 you will be con­nected to a doc­tor, ei­ther by phone or video, who will con­duct a con­sul­ta­tion with you and is­sue scripts, med­i­cal cer­tifi­cates, and a pro­fes­sional di­ag­no­sis ac­cord­ing to your needs.

The ser­vice could help re­duce the num­ber of pre­sen­ta­tions to hos­pi­tal emer­gency de­part­ments and en­sure res­i­dents have con­ti­nu­ity of a doc­tor, just a phone call away.
