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
All doctors working for DoctorDoctor are registered with the Medical Board of Australia. Many hold Fellowship of the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners (RACGP), or are currently studying towards achieving this goal. Doctors working with DoctorDoctor through the Approved Medical Deputising Service Program (AMDSP) are further assessed by the Department of Health and Ageing prior to placement on the program. Doctors on the AMDSP are required to meet stringent and continuing medical education requirements far beyond that required by the RACGP. They are also mentored by our Medical Advisory team towards achieving Fellowship of the RACGP.

App Crashes Entering Doctors Clinic
Once I’ve gotten through entering all the relevant information requested, I get to the end where it asks for my Doctors clinic, however the moment I type a letter it crashes the App and I’m forced to start the process all over again. After attempting this 3 times, I’ve given up and deleted the App. I can see there was a review a year ago that details the same problem, clearly no one takes the problem seriously as the error has not been fixed in all this time. What a waste of time.
Don’t bother. They clearly don’t even employ enough doctors that after setting up accounts and all the hurdles and hoops they tell me by lunchtime on Sunday that all the doctors are booked out in my area (inner city melb suburb, literally ten min walk from cbd) and to call another service- uhh what even is the point of you except to waste time? Not to mention the most archaic app experience to match their service.
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.
