How To Help Avoid Gridlock in the Waiting Room

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.

For trusted health advice anytime, speak to a Registered Nurse, or a GP after hours, on free call 1800 022 222
