A bulk billing Medical Centre in Cairns open 24 hours, 7 days a week, in other country areas unheard of. Granted you may have to wait, however if you ring ahead and make an appointment you might find the waiting time a little less, doesn't the fact that you have to wait indicate how valuable the service is, it is a very busy place. Not many country city regions have a facility that are open these hours and bulk bill, only the hospital is open at midnight. Have you tried seeing your own GP after hours? I would like to say people need to understand yes it will be busy, especially when all other Drs are closed, however when you need urgent medical treatment and it is someone you care about or even yourself, hey it might be worth waiting that bit of time to see the Dr, you will wait a lot longer at the local hospital. Please support the service being provided, rather than 'bagging it' people, one day you might be grateful they have saved a life that couldn't wait until the next day or for the hospital to see them. Keep up the service 24 Hour, the majority of us appreciate it.
