After Hours & Home Visits
When the surgery is closed there are a few options.
Brisbane has 2 main afterhour doctor services. Both of these services are independent of our medical centre and we have no affiliation with them.
Our nearest public hospitals with emergency departments are Royal Brisbane Hospital (Herston), Prince Charles Hospital (Chermside), and Mater Public Hospital (South Brisbane).
Our nearest Kids Public Hospitals are Prince Charles Hospital (Chermside) and Lady Cilento Childrens Hospital (South Brisbane)
Our nearest private hospitals with emergency departments fro adults and kids are St Andrew's Hospital (Spring Hill), Holy Spirit Northside Hospital (Chermside), Wesley Hospital (Auchenflower), Mater Private Hospital (South Brisbane).
It is often impossible for a doctor to leave a crowded waiting room full of sick people without notice. For this reason, we are unable to provide home visits for emergencies and suggest that an ambulance is contacted in these situations.
Home visits may be booked in advance in some cases but these must be negotiated with the doctor and will attract a call out fee. Strict limitations apply as to who is eligible for this service. Please speak with your doctor for more information on this.
