Over the last 10 years, GP Access After Hours (GPAAH), together with almost 250 local GPs have delivered after hours care for the Newcastle and Hunter community.
The service, with generous support from the Department of Health and Hunter New England Local Health District, has established a highly efficient network to support patients needing care in the after hours period, where access to GPs can be challenging. This network includes an industry leading Patient Streaming Service which is housed right here in Newcastle and is staffed by specially trained and highly experienced people who carefully assess the health needs of each caller.
