As health concerns don’t always present during day time or normal office hours, Gippsland PHN is aiming to support the community with raising awareness of how to make the appropriate choice in the event of needing non-critical after hour medical support.
An advertising campaign will appear in a selection of media across Gippsland from the end of July till September 2016 – typically a period of higher demand for after hour medical support – with a stepped decision process on how to make the right call to get the right care at night, on weekends and public holidays.
The messages included in the advertisements are:
- First, check your local GP or clinic’s opening times or after hours options.
- If your GP clinic is closed, call the after hours GP helpline 1800 022 222 for medical advice and support; OR
- If it’s an emergency, always call triple zero.
