Your regular GP should always be your first point of call if you require medical care and it is not a life threatening emergency. Some GP surgeries do offer after hours care to their patients. Make yourself familiar with any after hours arrangements that your GP surgery has in place and keep their details handy.

Medical advice can be obtained 24/7  via the national Healthdirect Australia telephone health advice service 1800 022 222 where a registered nurse can provide information and advice.
