'Make the right call' after hours campaign
COORDINARE – South Eastern NSW PHN has developed a communications campaign to help raise awareness among local residents and tourists/holiday makers of the after hours medical options available within the region.
The campaign will encourage community members to:
- first determine the availability and after hours arrangements of their GP or nearest general practice (details available at healthdirect.gov.au) or call Radio Doctor in the Illawarra on 4228 5522
- if that is not an option, call the after hours GP helpline (1800 022 222) for medical advice and support
- call 000 in a medical emergency or attend the nearest emergency department for a serious illness or injury.
