What to do when sick
In Australia, if you are sick you can go to a doctor (also known as a General Practitioner, or GP) for minor medical issues or a hospital if your injury or illness is life-threatening.
If it is an emergency...
If you have a serious or life-threatening injury or illness, go to a hospital emergency department, or call the emergency services on 000 for an ambulance.
If it is not an emergency...
If your condition is not life-threatening but you require medical advice or treatment, you do not need to go to the hospital. Book an appointment to see a doctor.
For minor illnesses, such as coughs, colds or sore throats, you can visit a pharmacy to get medicines to treat your symptoms.
You should always take your membership card and photo ID with you when accessing healthcare services.
