Welcome to GP Access After Hours
GP Access After Hours provides comprehensive after hours primary medical care for patients of the Hunter Urban Region. The service is a national leader in after hours medical care and is strongly supported by our community.
Established in Maitland in 1999, and then expanded across the region in 2003, the service is truly groundbreaking with its innovative funding arrangements and integration systems with the Hunter New England Area Health Service. Since its inception, the service has established a workforce of over 240 GPs, a remarkable achievement in an area of significant workforce shortage.
The service has seen over one million patients since it began. The service manages an estimated 10,000 patients per year who would otherwise been seen in emergency departments.
