DoctorDoctor - 13 26 60 - www.doctordoctor.com.au
DoctorDoctor is a home visit doctor service provided to residents of metropolitan Brisbane, Melbourne, Perth and Sydney. This house call service is bulk-billed* and there are no out of pocket costs if you are registered with Medicare or Veterans Affairs. Anyone can access this after-hours home visiting medical service if their postcode falls within our coverage area.
If medical attention is required after-hours and it's not an emergency, patients can use our booking application to simply arrange a doctor to their home or alternately our call centre is available to organise a house call from an experienced doctor. Phone calls are triaged by suitably qualified and experienced staff and relayed to our doctors in the field.
Patients are telephoned by the treating doctor prior to attendance and reassured that they will be consulted in a medically appropriate timeframe. Patients may be provided with valuable self-care management advice prior to the doctor’s actual arrival or referred to emergency services where appropriate. A detailed treatment report of each consultation may also be forwarded to the patient’s regular General Practitioner.
Established in 1969, DoctorDoctor (previously Australian Locum Medical Service) has been providing after-hours medical services to patients of General Practitioners for over forty years and holds full accreditation with the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners. DoctorDoctor was the first Medical Deputising Service (MDS) established in Melbourne and Perth and is a founding member of the National Association of Medical Deputising Services. Such long-term experience in this challenging and ever changing industry enables the provision of unparalleled and professional after-hours patient care in the home

Crashes can’t add information
The app crashes when I try to enter my doctor information I tried many times, have given up
I've thought to use this app only twice (normally I just call). The first time was months ago before an update and it kept crashing. Today, nothing crashed, but it states their mobile booking service is out of operating hours (it's currently 5am Sunday morning) and they state on the same page that they are currently open these hours. Ended up calling to make the booking.
Tips in case you need a doctor!
This app crashes if you try to enter your GP info (which is the last question - sigh). But if you skip that question you can register.
You have to close the app and reopen it after registration to get it to work. Otherwise the screen is greyed out. Not sure if it works after that because I ended up using my laptop.
You can book on the website but apparently not from a smart phone. It worked from my laptop.
They don’t give you an appointment time - so hopefully if won’t take too long.
