House Call Doctor’s home doctor service might remind you of the traditional home doctors who would visit their patients after hours. We are committed to making sure patients in Queensland and Northern New South Wales receive the medical care they need, whenever they need it.
Our home doctors will bulk bill if you have a Medicare or Department of Veterans’ Affairs (DVA) card, no matter what time you make your booking.
Who are we?
House Call Doctor works hard to relieve the pressure put on local emergency rooms by providing medical attention to patients in the comfort of their own home. We see most of our patients within three hours of them making a booking.
Our after-hours home doctors are here to visit you when regular GPs and medical centres have closed for the day (or weekend). You can book an appointment at the following times:
6pm to 8am
Sundays and Public Holidays

Our home doctors are not intended to replace your normal GP. The House Call Doctor service can help you when you are sick or injured, when your regular GP is closed. Once you have been treated, the home doctor will prepare a clinical report for your GP to ensure they are up to date on your healthcare needs.
Our home doctors are fully registered with the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (APHRA), as required by the Australian Medical Board. Our service operates to the standards of the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners.
