'Twas The Night Before Christmas and All the GPs Were Closed…

Worried sick? Call 13SICK.

Every mum knows that dreaded feeling when a little one gets sick at night, or on the weekend, when GPs are all closed. And the public holidays over the Christmas break seem to stretch on forever when you need to see a doctor urgently. That’s why 13SICK, National Home Doctor Service is such a godsend for families.

13SICK provides urgent, after hours medical care to families across the Melbourne metropolitan area. Their doctors are available for home visits over the Christmas holidays when most GPs are closed. To find out if they cover your suburb, click here.

The 13SICK doctors treat patients for all kinds of acute, episodic conditions (most commonly gastro, UTIs, migraine, respiratory infections). During the summer months, food poisoning and heat-related illnesses are also common, particularly in the very young and the elderly.

13SICK bulk bills all patients with a Medicare or Gold DVA card, and a medical report is sent to your usual GP the next day, ensuring continuity of care.

13SICK operating hours over the holidays:

Saturday 23 December - From 12 noon

Sunday 24 December - All day

Monday 25 December - All day
