If you’re not feeling well there are different treatment options depending on your particular circumstances. We want to make sure you gets the right care, in the right place, at the right time.
You can use the Symptom Checker to assess your situation or call the healthdirect helpline on 1800 022 222.
Through the Symptom Checker and helpline you can find out information including:
- When and how you can safely take care of yourself at home, or until you can visit your GP.
- What to keep watch for, when to call 000 or go to the Emergency Department.
- How you can better understand symptoms you might have.
In an emergency you should always dial 000 or go straight to your nearest Emergency Department.
Care in an Emergency Department (ED) is prioritised. You can help our ED staff by using alternative services if you are not seriously ill. For instance, you might see your local GP/doctor or call healthdirect to talk to a Registered Nurse on 1800 022 222 (24 hours).
If you have a health emergency call 000.
