After Hours Practice Incentive Payment

04 June 2018

To claim any level of the After Hours Practice Incentive Payment (PIP), practices must ensure their After Hours details are clearly listed on the National Health Services Directory (NHSD).

To check if the after hours details for your practice are correct, you can access the NHSD via our After Hours website www.afterhourshealth.com.au on the Find a local GP page. If your practice information is incorrect, click the Report an error button on your listing or email nhsd@healthdirect.org.au and provide details of the changes required.

In order to claim level 1-4 of the After Hours PIP (where practices rely on a third party such as a Medical Deputising Service to provide a level of coverage) practices must have a formal document outlining the arrangements with that third party.

In our region the following approved Medical Deputising Services are operating:

  • Lower Blue Mountains - National Home Doctor Service (up to Faulconbridge)
  • Hawkesbury - Sydney West Medical Deputising Service (all areas), National Home Doctor Service (limited areas)
  • Penrith - Penrith After Hours Doctors, National Home Doctor Service, Sydney Medical Service

For assistance with any After Hours information, call our Program Development Officer, Liz Welch on 4708 8132 or contact us online.
