Dial A Home Doctor announces that it offers after-hours home doctor service to patients in Brisbane, Gold Coast, and Redcliffe. The goal at Dial A Home Doctor is to maintain continuity of health care and ensure all health needs are managed. Dial A Home Doctor provides care when a patient’s regular GP is closed, during after-hours, and on weekends and public holidays.
Dial A Home Doctor can be guaranteed to deliver a dependable, high-quality after-hours home doctor service. The team knows that every patient’s needs are unique, and they strive to respect and value patient input at all times. Partnering doctors use easy to understand language and communicate clearly with the internal and external network of staff and patients, respectively. These doctors recognize that serving patients is a privilege, and they commit to uphold and maintain Dial A Home Doctor’s high level of professionalism and standards at all times.
As an after-hours Medical Deputising Service, Dial A Home Doctor works with doctors that are trained to deal with all category 4 and 5 medical issues. All serious or life-threatening medical issues will be referred immediately to the ambulance service or the local hospital Emergency department. In the event of a life-threatening situation, people should ring 000 immediately.
The services that Dial A Home Doctor provides should not be seen as a replacement for the patient’s regular GP. This service is designed to support the patient’s regular GP for after-hours attendance when the office of the regular GP is closed. The Dial A Home Doctor service is only available on Monday through Friday from 6 PM to 8 AM, on Saturdays from 12 PM, and on Sundays and public holidays 24 hours a day. Any details concerning treatment are provided to the patient’s regular GP the next day, and patients should contact their regular GP for any follow-up treatment. Dial A Home Doctor’s Australian call centre staff are well trained to provide the patient with the right information about how the service operates.
The focus at Dial A Home Doctor is to provide the most timely medical care, so calls will be triaged. In 90% of cases, doctors will arrive within two hours of the call; however, during peak times, the wait time may be slightly longer. Operators will stay in touch and contact the patient when the doctor is on the way.
Doctors are fully equipped to diagnose and treat most problems, conditions, and injuries that people seek treatment for. They can suture lacerations, arrange hospital admission, and start medications if required. They also provide wound care, palliative care, verification of death, catheterization, incident reports, and peg tube maintenance. Doctors can even visit the patient again on the same day if it is required.
Dial A Home Doctor, a privately-owned Australian company, is focused on delivering bulk billed after-hours doctor services to patients in their homes. A highly qualified team of local doctors provides medical services for non-life-threatening issues. The service’s Queensland locations are in Brisbane, Redcliffe, Gold Coast, Mackay, Toowoomba, and Hervey Bay.
