    Try the ' Family Care Friendly Society' they bulk bill all children under 16, you just need to show the Doctor your medicare care card when they come to your home.

    Ph: 137425

    The Doctors home visits are available from: 6pm to 8am Mon to Fri
    12 noon Saturday to 8am Monday
    24 hours on Sundays and public holidays.

    We've had them out several times in the late evenings and have had the same Doctor call out bar on one occasion.

    Oh I agree. But they mostly have just got here and it's scary to see their mistakes. We had one barge into our house one night then just walk out when we said it was the wrong house. No knocking , no apology nothing ! Govt needs to step up and have more clinics .

    Very true. You may not always need a precription.

    My DH's works away for extended periods of time and of course if something is going to happen, it always happens when he's away and I'm on my own. I needed a Doctor to come out when my DD fell off the side of the couch onto the tiles and had a inward bump. It was so reassurring to not have to drag out all the kids to the emergency (which would have been the only thing open) and have peace of mind that she wasn't concussed and the bump was a 'normal' bump and not a sinister one.

    Jordansmumma, I am not sure where on the northside you are, but there are after hours clinics in Kedron and Aspley as well, though unlike the call out Doctors mentioned above, I don't think they bulk bill and you can expect to shell out at least $70.

    I hope you complained, as that's not the usual protocol.

    When we call their service, we have always been treated with the upmost respect. The driver always rings us when the Doctor is 1/2 an hour away to tell us he/her is on their way to us, they ask us to put our outside light on and they also confirm our address once again and they also ask if you have a Dog to put them away etc. From the moment I tee up the call out, I am satisfied with how they conduct themselves. I have also asked them where they are usually based, and the one we currently have had visit a few times is based in the paediatric section of a very large Hospital by day.
