It doesn’t matter what time of the day it is, help is just a phone call away.

Understanding the after hours medical services available to you can save time, effort and, ultimately, your life.


If you are experiencing a medical emergency, go straight to hospital or call 000 for an ambulance.

As a guide, examples of medical emergencies which would require Triple Zero (000):

  • chest pain or chest tightness
  • sudden onset of weakness, numbness or paralysis of the face, arm or leg
  • breathing difficulties
  • sudden collapse or loss of consciousness
  • unexplained fitting in adults or children
