Aussie version of NHS Direct

    Recommended Posts

    For those of you who don't know there is an Australian version of NHS Direct - you can call 24/7 and be offered telephone triage by a nurse, find out information on health topics or find a suitable health service eg GP, dentist, health helpline or pharmacy etc. The number to call is 18000 22222. Great for those times when you think - now what do I do?? It's a govermwnt sponsored initiative and is available Australia wide.

    This is very useful and aimed at keeping folks out of hospital who don't really need to be there.

    Hi,

     

    You might be very lucky and get connected to Lindsey as your triage nurse - :)

    Thanks for the number - we used NHS Direct a few times in the UK.

    Actually used this yesterday as Rory has had gastro since Wednesday and has been really poorly. Spoke to a lovely lady called Maria, who sounded like she was from your neck of the woods Lindsey! Very helpful, great common sense advice and above all, very reassuring.:)
