Bathurst After Hours GP Clinic

The Bathurst After Hours GP Clinic aims to provide medical care to patients who have an urgent medical condition and are unable to wait to see their regular GP during normal surgery hours.

The clinic is located in the Specialist Rooms of the Heritage Building at Bathurst Base Hospital. It is staffed by a local GP, a Registered Nurse and a receptionist. The clinic operates 3pm until 7pm on weekends and public holidays (excluding Christmas Day and Good Friday).

The clinic offers bulk-billing and is a walk-in model so no appointments are necessary. The clinic is not intended to replace the routine care provided by your local GP or substitute medical care in an emergency situation. The clinic is designed to treat patients requiring urgent care or advice in the after hours period.

Bathurst After Hours Medical Service

The Marathon Health After Hours Program is an initiative which implements services with the purpose of improving primary care access in the after hours period. These services include GP phone advice, regional coordination of face to face medical care and telemedicine.

In addition to the Bathurst After Hours Clinic opening on the 1st December, the community of Bathurst now also has access to a telephone service connecting them to a local GP for medical advice outside normal GP surgery hours.

The telephone system operates:

  • Weeknights 6pm until 8am
  • Saturday from 12 noon
  • Sunday and public holidays 24 hours - 8am until 8am
