Finding a GP Doctor Near You Who Matches Your Needs

While Australia has some of the best healthcare in the world, finding a nearby general practitioner or medical professional isn’t always easy. Yes, key cities like Melbourne and Sydney have medical clinics in almost every corner. But if you’re in the rural areas, the nearest GP clinic could be miles away. Not to mention that you may have to wait days or weeks to secure a doctor’s appointment.

This is where telehealth steps in to bridge the gap. With Instant Consult, you can connect with an Australian registered doctor via video call from anywhere in the country. Whether you need medical advice for chronic disease management or a referral to a mental health specialist, our doctors can provide the health services you need right from the comfort of your own home. This is especially helpful if you’re in a location with fewer medical facilities.

Plus, we have doctors available from 6AM to midnight AEST every single day, even on public holidays. This means whether you need medical advice early in the morning or late at night, help is just a video call away. Instant Consult makes it easier than ever to manage your health on your schedule.

When to Visit a Medical Centre

While online medical services offer convenience and accessibility, there are times when a visit to a medical centre is necessary. Here’s when you should consider going in person:

  • Physical Examinations: If you need a thorough physical check-up or a hands-on assessment, such as for physical injury, an in-person visit is essential.
  • Diagnostic Procedures: Certain tests, like imaging for chronic disease management or skin cancer screenings, require specific equipment only available at a medical clinic.
  • Complex Conditions: More serious or complicated health issues, such as severe mental health crises or acute conditions, may require direct care at a healthcare facility.
  • Immediate Care: Urgent symptoms that could indicate serious conditions like heart attack or stroke must be addressed immediately at the nearest emergency department.
  • Immunisations: Vaccinations need to be administered in person to ensure they are given safely and effectively.
  • Iron Infusion: Treatments like iron infusions require clinical supervision and equipment, making an in-person visit necessary.
  • Clearance Certificates: If you require a Mask Exemption, ‘Fit for Work’ Certificate, ‘Fit to Fly’ Certificate, Childcare/’Back to School’ Clearance, or Gym Cancellation Certificate – you will need to present to a GP in-person to undergo a physical examination and will not be able to use the Instant Consult service for these types of medical documents.
  • External Forms: Doctors at Instant Consult cannot fill out any third-party or external forms such as: Centrelink, University Forms, Work Cover, Inusrance Forms, a certificate for missing police station attendances, parole or court appearances, etc.
