Some medical clinics and after-hours medical centers in Brisbane offer urgent care services for non-life-threatening medical issues that require prompt attention but are not severe enough to warrant a visit to the hospital emergency department.
Health Direct Helpline: If you’re uncertain about whether you need emergency care, you can call the Health Direct helpline at 1800 022 222 for advice from registered nurses. They can help you assess your symptoms and guide you on the appropriate course of action.
After-Hours GP Services: In non-emergency doctor Brisbanes ituations, you can also contact after-hours general practitioners (GPs) who offer medical care outside regular office hours. They can provide medical advice and treatment for minor illnesses and injuries.
It’s important to remember that for life-threatening emergencies, such as chest pain, severe injuries, difficulty breathing, or loss of consciousness, you should call 000 immediately.
If you’re in a situation where you need medical attention but it’s not an emergency, consider visiting an after-hours medical center or contacting your regular GP for guidance.
