Healthdirect Australia is a free telephone service that anyone can ring for advice or information on health matters like a specific condition 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
A registered nurse is on hand to help you decide the best course of action or to link you with appropriate local health facilities for follow up and treatment. Alternatively, you may want information about a specific health condition or about where to find after-hours health services.
This new service will give you timely advice on health problems you, or someone you are caring for
including children, are experiencing.
Healthdirect Australia is there to meet all these needs. Of course, if you have a health emergency you still dial Triple Zero (000) and ask for Ambulance.
To contact Healthdirect Australia phone 1800 022 222. Calls on landlines will be free but mobile charges may apply. Visit the website www.healthdirect.org.au
