Need After-Hours Healthcare? 30 GPs to See In-Clinic or at your Own Home

Sick after hours? It used to be that after-hours illness meant sticking it out until morning, or dragging yourself or your loved ones to hospital to endure hours of waiting among emergency patients. Thankfully, after-hours and home-visit GPs are on the rise, so you don’t have to wait until business hours to start getting the treatment you need.

To help you, we’ve put together a list of 30 after-hours and home visit medical practices around Australia. We’ve listed national services, then state-by-state options including all the information you need such as opening hours, addresses, websites, phone numbers and more. We hope this list helps you easily and quickly find local after hours treatment, so you can start getting well as soon as possible.
