Australia: Understanding about the afterhours GP helpline

OSHCstudents – You can connect with a healthcare professional from your home, from work, or from wherever is most convenient, using your device — smartphone, tablet or desktop computer.

 

 

When you call the afterhours GP helpline, a registered nurse will assess you and based on your symptoms, the nurse may offer you a phone call or a video call from a GP. The GP will contact you within 15 minutes or 1 hour depending on the urgency of your health issue and the post code you are calling from. You can either choose a phone call or a video call.

At the end of your call, you will be offered a care advice summary, sent to you by SMS or email, so you can easily recall the details of the advice you are given.

You can also agree to have a summary of your call sent to your regular GP’s practice overnight, so they are aware of the call when they open their surgery the following day. The afterhours GP helpline can also upload a summary of your call to your My Health Record.

If you are calling from outside the major cities, the afterhours GP helpline is available:

  • Monday to Friday, 6pm – 7:30am
  • Saturday, from midday
  • Sunday and Public Holidays, all day

Note: 24 hours health advice you can count on 1800 022 222

I trust Allianz Care since it is one of the largest insurance companies in Australia, with the medical centres where I only have to pay for what is left from insurance support. (no need to claim later). Besides, those centres are located at the centre of the city, close to schools. Very convenient, right? Credits to Allianz Care for providing reliable medical centres for health check and treatments.

I’ve been living with homestay family for 2 years. I’m now 19, I can move out but I don’t want to leave my host, who has become my family. It feels like I’ve met my second family. Thanks OSHCstudents for sending me to this homestay!

I realised how important insurance was when I started living in Australia. There I switched to using Allianz Care instead of the previous service. Allianz Care is extraordinarily good in its consulting service and customer care. I’ve learned a lot about Australian health care, also I was consulted with mental issues and how to live a healthy lifestyle. I am very happy now.

Thanks to Allianz Care, every time I claimed my medical receipts it processed much more quickly and easily than I expected. I was initially a bit concerned since Allianz Care is more expensive than other insurance companies, but now I can ensure that it is totally worth the money.
