Available through Healthdirect Australia, the after hours GP helpline is open when your GP may not be - at nights, on weekends and on public holidays - 365 days a year. If you don't know what to do, the after hours GP helpline will give you the reassurance and practical advice you need. When you call the new helpline, your call will be answered by a registered nurse who will assess your condition. If necessary, the nurse will transfer you to a GP on the telephone. The GP will talk with you, assess your condition, make a diagnosis and provide medical advice.
