New campaign points to right medical care after hours
Primary Health Tasmania has launched a new education and awareness campaign which will guide Tasmanians to the best options for after hours medical care.
The centrepiece of the new campaign is a television advertisement which prompts people to visit the Tas After Hours website – www.tasafterhours.com – and save a free web app which allows people to:
- save their doctor’s contact details and call their doctor
- call the government-funded healthdirect helpline or another helpline
- find an open GP, pharmacy or emergency department nearby
- in the case of a medical emergency, call an ambulance.
