Need medical care after hours? Access GP services and keep emergency departments for emergencies

22 June 2022

If you or a family member is sick when your regular GP’s practice is closed, do you know your options?

After hours medical care is available across South Western Sydney for non-life-threatening injuries or illnesses such as coughs, colds and fevers, minor cuts or burns, sporting injuries, migraines, stomach bugs and various infections.

The healthcare service gives local residents greater access to GP care closer to home on weekday evenings, weekends and public holidays, ensuring patients are not attending local hospital emergency departments unnecessarily.

After hours care can be provided via face-to-face consultation or at home, in a clinic, or via telehealth or video call, depending on the provider. SWSPHN funds three after hours services, providing services across the seven local government areas in our region.

These include:

  • My Emergency Doctor
  • Southern Highlands GP After Hours Service
  • Sydney Medical Service Co-op – after hours GP home visiting service

The after hours period is: Monday to Friday, 6pm to 8am; Saturday, before 8am and after 12pm; and all day Sundays and public holidays.
