Your own doctor is not always available when you or someone in your family is unwell.
There are After Hours GP services available in Townsville and Mackay. Please note that attendance at some GP clinics may incur fees.
The after hours GP helpline is intended for people whose health condition cannot wait for treatment until regular general practice services are next available, cannot see their usual GP out of hours, do not know where to access after hours care or are not sure what they should do.
The after hours GP helpline is not intended for people with life-threatening conditions. People with such conditions should dial ‘000’ and/or attend an emergency department without delay. The service is not intended for people with non-urgent conditions that can effectively be treated by the person’s usual GP during normal working hours.
