The Melbourne Sports Medicine Centre offers after hours medical care for all of our patients. With the upcoming public holidays during the Christmas and New Year period, this is something that may need to be considered.
Illness and injury does not necessarily occur during business hours so to ensure ongoing care for our patients, for all non-urgent problems, we recommend the National Home Doctor Service. The National Home Doctor Service is a network of qualified doctors that provides bulk-billed after hours medical care to patients in their homes. A report of your after hours consultation will be sent to us and imported into your Health Record. When you next attend The Melbourne Sports Medicine Centre we can then follow on with the visiting doctors treatment and management.
The National Home Doctor Service can be reached on 13 SICK (7425).
Of course for all emergency situations please phone 000.
Whilst we do hope you never require their services, the National Home Doctor Service is there if you need them!
