GV Health’s emergency department is continuing to experience extremely high demand, resulting in lengthy wait times for patients with non-urgent matters. This situation is expected to continue into the coming days. We ask that community members only come to the Emergency Department for conditions that are urgent or life-threatening.
If you are unable to access a GP, there are a number of alternative services available. We have put together a handy printable guide, listing a variety of services for health support, advice and consults. Many of these services are available 24/7. The guide is available at https://bit.ly/3OyEOhr
Our staff are working hard to attend to all patients as quickly as possible, prioritising life-threatening emergencies. Many of our staff are working overtime and additional shifts to ensure essential services continue to be provided.
Thank you for your patience and understanding during this time.
