GP Clinic appointments for doctors and medical students
If you do not have your own doctor, the DHSA after- hours clinic is a convenient point of first call.
We have a team of eight experienced GPs working on a casual basis at the clinic. They possess a very broad range of clinical skills in general practice, mental health, contraception, women’s health and primary care…. i.e., anything!
We are open for two after- hours sessions each week, being two of
– Monday 5-9 pm,
– Wednesday 5-9 pm or
– Saturday 9-12.30 pm
You will be required to complete a medical history form to take into the consultation to discuss with your doctor.
We offer four types of medical service:
1.Comprehensive medical check-ups
– conducted over 2-3 consultations
– includes cardiovascular and cancer risk assessment
– initial appointment is 30 mins (60 mins for rural doctors)
– follow-up appointment is 60 minutes to discuss results, complete the physical examination and discuss your areas of risk and future treatment. This is suited to:
– those doctors who have not seen a doctor for some time (and may have never had a thorough medical assessment) and
– those who have been managing their own health without an independent assessment of their risk.
– such check-ups attract 5 MIGA IRM points
2. Acute medical assessment
– 30 minutes
– for any type of presentation including acute physical or mental illness
– follow-up appointments will be discussed and arrangements made This is suited to:
– unwell doctors or students who can’t access or do not have their own doctor.
We encourage a follow-up comprehensive check- up in cases where they do not have their won doctor
We encourage every doctor and student to select a GP of choice in the community
3. Periodical care.
We understand that many doctors prefer a blended form of care whereby they may manage some things them self and may only seek an independent review by another doctor for certain things and only some of the time. This is suited to :
– those self-treating and self-investigating doctors who really should have another doctor cast a fresh set of eyes on their problem list!
4. Telemedicine This is planned for July 2016 ( details TBA)
This is suited to:
– the rural doctor with difficult geographical access.
There is no substitute for regular GP support, and DHSA encourages doctors to let us do everything possible to safeguard their health.
Please note that our service is available ONLY to registered doctors and medical students. If you are NOT a registered member of the medical profession, please do not proceed.
To make an appointment at the after-hours Adelaide clinic:
Either call the clinic on 8232 1250
Or click on “Book Appointment Online” and enter your contact details, day, time and doctor required. We will then send a confirmatoryemail along with a Confidential Medical History Form (and a timely reminder SMS).
You will need to bring your completed Confidential Medical History Form along to give to your doctor at the appointment. If you prefer to see a local comminity- based GP who is a member of the DHSA team, please go to our Find a GP page.
Two-stage appointment We encourage doctors and medical students without a doctor to raise any immediate areas of concern, and also to have a comprehensive check-up (we will help you to find a GP of choice for your on-going medical care).
Your medical assessment may need to be conducted over two appointments, the first of which is an initial half-hour consultation, followed by a second longer appointment to allow a full assessment by your treating doctor along with a proper discussion. If you feel a longer initial appointment is required, you can book a one-hour appointment (rural doctors especially may find this option more convenient).
