Stay home, stay safe – after hours support available from home
Bathurst and Dubbo residents are now able to access Marathon Health’s free GP After Hours services from the comfort of their homes, allowing physical distancing requirements to be met.
Marathon Health, Portfolio Manager of Primary Health Services, Shellie Burgess, said the service can now accommodate clients through phone or video consults.
“The Dubbo and Bathurst after hours telephone services are proving crucial to residents who need medical advice outside of normal GP hours. We urge people to use these services if they have any nonemergency concerns and need medical advice from a local GP,”Ms Burgess said.
Operating alongside the telephone service – the walk-in GP clinic available on weekends is now operating via phone or video for patients who don’t want to leave their homes to comply with physical distancing laws.
