Information for pharmacies and hospitals
Each year 13SICK, National Home Doctor Service visits over 1,000,000 patients in their homes. Common illnesses our doctors treat include acute respiratory illnesses such as head colds, middle ear infections, whooping cough, croup, and influenza, and infections of the throat, tonsils and larynx. The universal symptoms of coughing, sneezing and a runny nose help illnesses like these to spread quickly in the childcare setting. Other frequent illnesses include gastroenteritis, skin infections and rashes.
It is always a worry when a loved one falls ill in the after hours. If the family GP is closed, what can people do? It’s not life-threatening, but at the same time, the patient needs see a doctor, and it can’t wait. That's when 13SICK, National Home Doctor Service can help.
Our team of around 800 Doctors provide urgent medical care after hours to patients at home on weeknights, weekends and public holidays, 365 days a year. Our service is particularly helpful to parents with young children, the elderly, and those with mobility issues.
