Medical issues can often occur after most GP surgeries have closed their doors. So where do you turn for help? If your surgery doesn’t offer after hours doctor appointments or your problem isn’t acute enough to attend the emergency department, Instant Consult can put you in touch with fully qualified doctors right up until midnight – every day of the year, including bank holidays. By registering with us, you will be able to access medical advice, prescriptions, referrals or a medical certificate for work (if deemed clinically appropriate) from our online doctors via a video consultation.

Need to Speak to an After-Hours Doctor? Instant Consult Can Help

Our easy-to-access service enables you to speak to doctors that are Fellows of the RACGP and ACCRM – the highest qualification that a GP can obtain in Australia – so you can rest assured that you’re speaking to medical professionals. Whether you are using a PC, a laptop, smartphone or tablet, you’ll be connected with an after-hours Dr within 15 minutes, so you can have a face-to-face consult without having to leave your home. The service has been designed to supplement the traditional healthcare service and is especially helpful if you can’t physically access a health care facility or when your local surgery is closed.

Choose Australia’s Leading After Hours Doctor Service

Even if you are just looking to speak to a GP after hours, it’s useful to know that our service is available from six in the morning until midnight, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. Since we started our service, we have helped over 50,0000 people to speak to a doctor and are now completing over 10,000 consultations a month. Our service is simple to use and will give you access to GPs that can help you with a range of medical services including:

  • Issuing medical certificates
  • Issuing repeat and compound online scripts Australia
  • Specialist referrals
  • Pathology and radiology requests
  • General medical advice

Please note that our doctors can only issue certain kinds of medical certificates, for ‘fit to work’ Centrelink or a gym cancellation certificate you will need to visit a GP in person and that all certificates and prescriptions can only be issued if deemed clinically appropriate.

The Difficulties of Accessing a GP after Hours

Gaining access to a doctor can be extremely difficult outside of normal surgery hours, particularly if you live in a rural area where there are none close by. It can be almost impossible if you need a weekend GP because many surgeries are closed or, at best, provide minimal services.

Although your condition may not be serious enough to warrant a visit to your nearest Emergency Department or to telephone 000 for an emergency call-out, it can be serious to you. If you need urgent attention and can’t wait to book an appointment when your doctor’s surgery is open, you need a qualified weekend doctor.

Using our After Hours Weekend GP Service

The simple answer to the problem is to contact Instant Consult and use our after hours weekend doctor service. Not only do we provide a late-night service through the week, but we operate seven days a week so the service is available throughout the weekend when medical support is otherwise in short supply.

Since we know you often need urgent help when you contact us, we make the service as quick and efficient as it can possibly be. All you have to do is download our app to your smartphone (either Android or Apple) and apply for a consultation. We’ll provide a quick response with a video consultation where a qualified weekend doctor will assess your condition and determine the best course of action. This may be:

a prescription for medication, which can be sent to you electronically or by post, or to a pharmacy so you can collect the medication or have it sent directly to you.

    • advice on how you can relieve or overcome the condition
    • referral to a specialist if further tests or a particular treatment are necessary
    • referral to an Emergency Department if urgent treatment is needed.

Fast Treatment By Doctors Available On The Weekend

Our aim is always to provide the best treatment possible in the quickest and most effective way. That’s true whatever time of day or night you contact us and even over the weekends.

Unlike many medical practices, our service doesn’t wind down on the weekend. That’s because we understand that people need treatment at all hours of the week and can’t wait for their GP surgery to open. So, if you want treatment or medical advice, get in touch any day of the week and we’ll sort out your problem quickly and without fuss.

Access an After-Hours GP Easily with Instant Consult

To access an Instant Consult after hours doctor, you must be over 17 years of age and reside in Australia. We can also provide consultations for patients under 17 years of age, but a parent or guardian must give permission and be present throughout the consult.

You will need to have access to the internet and either a PC, laptop, tablet or smartphone with video and microphone capabilities. If you are using a PC, laptop, or Android tablet, access through Google Chrome at the following URL patient.instantconsult.com.au or, if you are a smartphone or iPad user, download the appropriate Instant Consult app to book a doctor online.

To get started, you just need to create an account with us – every patient needs a separate account, even if they are under 17 years old – and link a debit or credit card so that you can pay for your consultation. Your account will include an ‘Inbox’ where you will be able to access any medical documentation that we issue as a result of your consultation.

Once you’ve created your account, simply ‘Request a Consultation’ and you’ll be connected to one of our after-hours doctors within 15 minutes. It really is that simple.

Consultations are timed and billed automatically, with the fee deducted from your nominated debit or credit card once the consult is over, plus bulk billing is available for eligible patients who have a valid Medicare card. Read Less
