DoctorDoctor - 13 26 60 - www.doctordoctor.com.au
DoctorDoctor is a home visit doctor service provided to residents of metropolitan Brisbane, Melbourne, Perth and Sydney. This house call service is bulk-billed* and there are no out of pocket costs if you are registered with Medicare or Veterans Affairs. Anyone can access this after-hours home visiting medical service if their postcode falls within our coverage area.
If medical attention is required after-hours and it's not an emergency, patients can use our booking application to simply arrange a doctor to their home or alternately our call centre is available to organise a house call from an experienced doctor. Phone calls are triaged by suitably qualified and experienced staff and relayed to our doctors in the field.
Patients are telephoned by the treating doctor prior to attendance and reassured that they will be consulted in a medically appropriate timeframe. Patients may be provided with valuable self-care management advice prior to the doctor’s actual arrival or referred to emergency services where appropriate. A detailed treatment report of each consultation may also be forwarded to the patient’s regular General Practitioner.
Established in 1969, DoctorDoctor (previously Australian Locum Medical Service) has been providing after-hours medical services to patients of General Practitioners for over forty years and holds full accreditation with the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners. DoctorDoctor was the first Medical Deputising Service (MDS) established in Melbourne and Perth and is a founding member of the National Association of Medical Deputising Services. Such long-term experience in this challenging and ever changing industry enables the provision of unparalleled and professional after-hours patient care in the home
All doctors working for DoctorDoctor are registered with the Medical Board of Australia. Many hold Fellowship of the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners (RACGP), or are currently studying towards achieving this goal.

Doctors on the AMDSP are required to meet stringent and continuing medical education requirements far beyond that required by the RACGP.

Update to booking clinic appointments
Ratings and Reviews
I've thought to use this app only twice (normally I just call). The first time was months ago before an update and it kept crashing. Today, nothing crashed, but it states their mobile booking service is out of operating hours (it's currently 5am Sunday morning) and they state on the same page that they are currently open these hours. Ended up calling to make the booking.
Crashed each time I tried to type into the Service Name, 3rd time I skipped this field and my booking was able to be submitted.
Don't bother - quicker to go to hospital and wait!
So placed a booking at around 4pm on a Sunday evening. Had an email saying a doctor had been allocated at 609pm. Had to call the hotline at just past 8pm as I had heard nothing else, was told the doctor had written a rough eta of between 9 and 10pm to attend. Dial-a-doctor can have someone there within 3 hours of calling and the hospital estimated wait time is currently an hour. Would still be quicker going to hospital (which is where I'm going now) and get seen than wait at home for these idiots. Download another app but don't bother using these guys!!
