Reminder: you can access services in South Western Sydney

After hours healthcare services are available for South Western Sydney residents.

If your condition is urgent and you can’t wait or are not able to see a doctor during opening hours, then consider using a SWSPHN-funded after hours healthcare service.

If you are experiencing a time-critical emergency and/or dealing with unconsciousness, chest pain, difficulty breathing, uncontrolled bleeding or a major accident, dial 000 immediately.
