After Hours Care Is Always There

After Hours Care Is Always There,

In collaboration with,

North West Melbourne Primary Health Network

As a new mum to a very energetic and busy 13 month old boy, we’ve had our fair share of head bumps and bruises. 

It’s inevitable right?

I am sure I am not the only new mum that instinctively thinks they need to rush their little one to the Emergency Department for everything, big or small! But after personally sitting in the Emergency Department for hours in the middle of the night recently (with an overtired and exhausted bub) only to find of he’s just teething and getting a cold, was not what I would call ideal.

Surely there is another way!

The North West Melbourne Primary Health Network have just released the healthdirect app!

The healthdirect app is a new quick and easy way to check your symptoms, find a health service and get trusted health information without even leaving your home.

The Symptom Checker tool which guides you through a series of questions to help you make an informed decision about what to do next, whether it is self-care or seeing a health professional. The app also includes an Australia-wide directory covering a range of health services. It easily and conveniently helps you find the health service you need, when you need it, their contact details and directions all from your current location.

The healthdirect app is free and can be downloaded here!
