After Hours Services Essential in Christmas Period
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 Medical Service.
The Bathurst After Hours GP Clinic provides medical attention for patients who are seeking immediate treatment and are unable to wait to see their regular practitioner during routine hours. Alternatively, the After Hours Medical Service will connect patients to a local GP who will be able to offer advice and assistance which may save the trip to the Clinic itself.
