To ensure patients are cared for at all stages of the booking procedure, our calls are prioritized by our experienced call centre staff and relayed to our doctors on the road. This ensures appropriate triage and referral of patients to emergency services, or to the patient’s General Practitioner whenever required. Patients may be provided with self care management advice prior to the doctors arrival and, if required, appropriately referred to emergency services. A detailed report of each patients consult will be forwarded to their General Practitioner for continuity of care.
Our medical team participates and maintains comprehensive continued professional development. All of our doctors are registered by the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency. Some hold Fellowship of the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners (RACGP) or the Australian College of Rural and Remote Medicine (ACRRM), or are currently studying towards achieving this goal. Our doctors are assessed by the Department of Health and are required to meet stringent continuing medical education requirements. Our doctors are mentored by our Medical Advisory team towards achieving Fellowship of the RACGP or ACRRM. All of our orientation and mentor systems for doctors are quality assured.
To ensure the highest standard of health care delivery we maintain membership with key health organisations such as the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners, Primary Health networks, The National Association of Medical Deputising Services (NADMS) and The Australian Association of Practice Managers to ensure that that we are at the forefront of services to patients.
