Family Care Medical Services is now part of National Home Doctor Service

Established over 32 years ago, Family Care Medical Services provided an after hours doctor home visiting service to patients in South East Queensland and Sydney. A team of more than 200 deputising general practitioners made after hours calls to patients in Sydney, Brisbane, Ipswich and the Sunshine Coast on weeknights, weekends and public holidays.

Family Care Medical Services is proud to now be part of National Home Doctor Service, Australia’s largest network of bulk billing home visiting doctors. As National Home Doctor Service, patients continue to have access to convenient and affordable after hours heath care when their regular GP is closed and continue to receive the same excellent level of quality care. All National Home Doctor Service doctors carry starter packs of commonly prescribed medications, so treatment can often begin immediately. Our doctors provide a report after each visit to the patient’s regular GP within 24 hours, ensuring continuity of care is maintained.

National Home Doctor Service is a privately-owned Australian company, combining the strengths of long term industry leaders such as gpSolutions in Adelaide, Family Care Medical Services in Brisbane and Sydney, and Melbourne Medical Deputising Service in Melbourne and Geelong. National Home Doctor Service has over 500 doctors nationally who provide care to more than one million Australians at home and in aged care facilities. We operate in a number of cities including Sydney, Canberra, Melbourne, Geelong, Brisbane, the Gold Coast, Sunshine Coast, Toowoomba and Adelaide.

National Home Doctor Service is committed to providing quality care to all patients and is accredited by AGPAL to the standards of the RACGP.

National Home Doctor Service aims to:

  • Deliver a consistent, high quality service
  • Communicate clearly, simply and decisively
  • Be reassuring and responsive to individual needs
