See your doctor.


If you have genuine concerns regarding issues of physical or mental health and well-being please consult a qualified physician.
As much as our members can try to help, they should never be considered a substitute for proper healthcare.

Visits to the doctor can be considered expensive, at times, but remember you could try to find a doctor who bulk-bills (by phoning the surgery) or visit a public hospital.

Medicare ensures that all Australians have access to free or low-cost medical, optometrical and hospital care while being free to choose private health services and in special circumstances allied health services.
Medicare provides access to:
- free treatment as a public (Medicare) patient in a public hospital
- free or subsidised treatment by practitioners such as doctors, including specialists, participating optometrists or dentists (specified services only)
