About GP Access

GP Access provides comprehensive and quality after-hours medical care and advice to people of Newcastle, Lake Macquarie, Maitland and surrounding areas.

We are open and available when your regular GP is closed.

GP Access After Hours operates via a phone triage and appointment system. Our service is staffed with almost 200 local General Practitioners (GP's), Registered Nurses (RN's) and support staff. For routine and non-urgent care, you should make an appointment to see your regular GP in business hours.

GP Access provides bulk-billed services for eligible consultations. Our services include a clinic based face-to-face appointment or where appropriate, a Telehealth consultation. GP Access staff will discuss eligibility/ineligibility for a Telehealth consultation at the time of the telephone triage. A fee will be charged if a patient does not meet the eligibility requirements set by Medicare and proceeds with a Telehealth consultation.

There hours are:

Weeknights: 5.30pm until 8am the next day
Weekends: 12pm Saturday to 8am Monday
Public Holidays: 24 Hours

  • Maitland Hospital – 51 Metford Road, Metford

From October 1st 2023 we will only be bulking billing children 15 years and below and pension card holders 70 years and older for standard and long consultations. All other consultations or procedures will be private billed including Mental Health Care Plans.
