After hours campaign in South Eastern NSW
COORDINARE – South Eastern NSW PHN has developed a communications campaign to help raise awareness amongst 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 www.nhsd.com.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 their nearest emergency department for a serious illness or injury.
The campaign materials are currently being distributed to general practices and other key stakeholders to coincide with the advertising campaign. We'd love your help in distributing the information to patients.
