After Hours / Emergencies
For after-hours emergency treatment, please ring an ambulance on 000 or present to the Albany Health Campus Accident & Emergency Department.
If you have health concerns after hours, you may call the Healthdirect after-hours GP help line which is available 24 hours for practical medical advice and reassurance. Healthdirect can be reached on 1800 022 222.
As a rural practice, we are very mindful of the difficulty many of our patients have in gaining timely, affordable access to specialist medical advice in the city.
We are happy to offer teleconferencing with specialists in Perth if appropriate. Our nurses or the practice manager will coordinate these appointments, taking into account the availability of all concerned.
Whenever we arrange the video conferences we endeavour for your GP or the practice nurse to be present with you while you speak with the specialist.
