About 13SICK National Home Doctor

Every family should have a General Practitioner (GP) that they know and trust.  However, when you need urgent medical care, but your GP is closed, 13SICK National Home Doctor (13SICK) can help. With more than 400 doctors in our team, 13SICK is Australia’s largest network of home visiting doctors.

Our doctors treat patients with acute, episodic conditions (e.g. gastro, UTI, migraine, respiratory infections) on weeknights, weekends and public holidays. This year we will see more than 1 million patients at home and in aged care facilities.

We bulk bill all home visits for patients with a Medicare or Gold DVA card. If the patient does not have a Medicare or Gold DVA card, you can still book a doctor home visit and pay by credit card (Visa or MasterCard). We will issue you a receipt, which you can take to Medicare for a full refund. 

Telehealth consultations may incur a fee if your general practice does not subscribe to National Home Doctor and/or if you have not attended a face-to-face visit with your GP in the past 12-months. All doctors carry a bag stocked with starter packs of common medications, so in many cases, patients can start treatment immediately.

Following the home visit, we send a medical report to the patient’s GP the next day, ensuring continuity of care.

More GPs across Australia trust 13SICK to care for their patients in the after-hours. So, if you or a loved one needs to see a doctor urgently (and it’s not life-threatening), but your GP is closed, call 13SICK (that’s 13 7425) or book online from 6pm Monday to Friday, 12pm Saturday and all-day Sunday and public holidays and save the hospital Emergency Department for emergencies.
