After Hours

SEMPHN’s After Hours (AH) commissioning activities are guided by the Commonwealth Government’s AH objectives, which are to:

  • increase the efficiency and effectiveness of AH primary care for patients, particularly those with limited access to health services
  • improve access to AH primary care through effective planning, co-ordination and support for population-based after-hours primary care 
  • improve the availability of AH general practice services through working collaboratively with general practitioners.

After-hours innovation in primary care

  • extend bulkbilled Allied Health services in the After Hours’ period, including psychology, podiatry, physiotherapy, dietetics, wound care and minor procedures
  • extend specialist respiratory clinic hours with services of a specialist from Monash Health
  • open and operate a refugee and asylum seeker primary care clinic, and,
  • raise community awareness of after hours’ services.

These services are contracted from 1 March 2019 to 31 October 2020.
