When to visit a doctor or hospital

In Australia, we go to hospital if we have a medical emergency, or a pre-planned surgery.

If it’s not an emergency, we visit a doctor or GP first. You can talk to a doctor online or see a doctor face-to-face in your local area

An emergency is any medical problem that causes extreme pain, severe blood loss, or could cause death or permanent injury if not treated quickly. An example of an emergency is struggling to breathe, chest pains or a serious accident. If you have an emergency, call 000.
