Frequently Asked Questions

In short, no. The only way a doctor can be sanctioned by the PSR is if they’re found to be billing patients for urgent care for non-urgent ailments.

Working in both a clinic, or hospital, and with Night Doctor is completely legal, and there’s no conflict of interest. Night Doctor exists to provide patients with care outside of normal clinic hours, when their condition is urgent but not an emergency.

At this stage, no. Applications are only open to medical professionals that meet the requirements and are currently residing in Australia with an appropriate visa.

To work as an approved after hours care provider, you’ll need to meet the eligibility criteria. If you’re still studying or haven’t finished your postgraduate experience, you’re not yet eligible.
