Every summer, our region gets lots of visitors. This means our health services need to look after a lot more people, and this can make it harder to see your doctor. There are three things you can do to avoid gridlock in the waiting room…
Check you have enough medication
Get in early if you need to see your doctor as opening hours are limited
Get Healthdirect’s help if you begin to feel unwell
Healthdirect’s local service finder provides opening hours as well as information about home visits, phone or online consultations.
Their symptom checker helps you decide if you need to see a doctor.
