About Us

Dial a Doctor is a fully accredited and established after hours doctor service that has been operating since 2010. Our service is at the forefront of after hours care in Port Macquarie – providing a high quality and reliable service to those in need. We have a large team of excellent Doctors on the road, ready to visit you in your own home.

Our after hours doctor service operates in following manner:

  • Patients who are unwell can ring our call centre and book a call.
  • We take calls from everyone – people who have a Medicare or Veterans Affairs Card are bulk billed so the service is free. International tourists are charged a call out fee which can be claimed on travel insurance.
  • Once the call centre receptionists have booked the call it is sent out to our doctor/driver teams on the road.
  • The after hours doctor/driver teams attend the calls.
  • The patient is treated and we offer a range of services.
    • If the patient is in need of any medications we can provide them with a script.
    • The doctor’s bags have a supply of common medications so if the chemists are shut or the patient finds it difficult to leave the house the doctors can leave them with a starter pack.
    • The doctors can order blood tests or x-rays.
    • If necessary we can supply patients with a referral to the hospital.
  • Once the consultation has concluded the doctor writes the clinical notes for the consultation.
  • The clinical notes are then forwarded onto the patient’s daytime GP so they are kept informed about the treatment we have administered.

We pride ourselves on providing a quality service that is of great assistance to the community in the following ways:

  • People who are disabled, elderly or are without transport can have much easier access to primary health care.
  • We greatly help to alleviate strain on Hospital Accident & Emergency departments.
  • Single parents can have their child or themselves attended to after hours without having to take the whole family out of the house.
  • Patients can wait in the comfort of their own home for a doctor to attend to them.
  • By keeping patients out of waiting rooms we help prevent the spread of infectious diseases.
  • We are a bulk bill service, so we can be used by everyone.
