20th December 2017 – The Christmas period is a busy time for many and that extends to the Emergency Department (ED). During this period, Marathon Health wants the community to recognise that the ED should be kept for emergencies and should someone require urgent but non-emergency care, they are able to utilise the After Hours GP Clinic and Telephone Service. 

Jane Blundell, Marathon Health Manager of After Hours and Aged Care, says these services will be critical over the Christmas period and encourages anyone who is unsure of the urgency of their situation to phone the Telephone Service and ask the GP for advice.
