After hours care

Primary Health Tasmania works with health professionals and the community to ensure after hours services in this State are well-planned, coordinated, and appropriate to community needs. We provide support for a range of innovative approaches within the community aimed at improving after hours services for you. These include:

  • supporting Tasmanian after hours GP services via HealthDirect to enable ready access to a GP near you after hours 
  • providing Tasmanians with information about the range of medical services available after hours (at night time, on weekends and public holidays) and how to find them through a dedicated website and mobile app.
  • enabling after hours mental health care and clinical support for vulnerable Tasmanians via a telehealth service 
  • supporting a mobile health clinic to improve access to after hours medical care for vulnerable Tasmanians 
  • assisting a remote local general practice to extend their opening hours providing community access to urgent primary care after hours

The after-hours period is:

  • before 8:00am and after 6:00pm weekdays
  • before 8:00am and after 12:00pm Saturdays
  • all day Sundays and public holidays.
