About the HealthNow Katherine Service
Need to talk to a doctor after hours when your regular GP isn't available? A doctor is just a phone call away – and for residents and visitors in the Katherine area, there is no charge for your consultation! The HealthNow Doctor service in Katherine is funded by Northern Territory PHN.
HealthNow, is a virtual Doctor service where you can talk to a doctor by phone or video. A doctor can help you with common conditions such as cold and flu, fever, nausea and viral illnesses – similar to your regular GP.
HealthNow doesn’t replace your regular GP. It’s for when you need a doctor’s help after hours or on weekends and they aren’t available. HealthNow will send you a care summary at the end of your consultation for your regular GP or they can send them directly to your GP with your consent.
The service is available at the following times:
|Monday to Friday||6pm – 8am|
|Saturdays||12pm – 12am|
|Sundays and NT Public Holidays||All day|
