Doctor on Duty is a leading provider of medical care to patients of all ages in their home, or to those in aged care facilities. We are accredited to the standards of the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners (RACGP) and approved by the Australian Government Department of Health (DOHA). Our founders are experienced general practitioners and emergency physicians with many years of trusted experience. Our senior and experienced doctors visit homes and aged care facilities to ensure round the clock quality care when your general practitioner is closed or unavailable.
The doctor is on their way™
All patients are seen on the same day and by commencing treatment earlier, we improve the health outcomes for you, your family and our communities. By working closely with your family doctor, we can provide complete care in the community, reducing the need for hospital visits and long waits. We work closely with general practitioners to complement, but not replace their care.
Our promise to you
We provide a home doctor service every week day before 8 am and after 6 pm, Saturdays after 12 midday and all day Sundays and public holidays. We guarantee a high quality service and our doctors have excellent clinical and communication skills. Our call centre and administration staff are highly trained in assessment of medical conditions and will deal with your request with compassion and clarity. Our service undergoes regular quality reviews and all of our staff have regular training as well as conforming to the highest standards.
