The University area and all suburbs of Perth are well served by medical doctors.
Some doctors charge government-scheduled fees while others charge above scheduled fees. Ask about fees when making an appointment.
The University has a medical centre on campus, located on the second floor of the Guild Village. Charges for services are generally the same as scheduled fees.
There are also a number of after-hours medical services in Perth.
HealthDirect (Telephone 1800 022 222) is a 24 hour, 7-day-a-week health advice service. Experienced nurses provide professional advice on whether a health concern is urgent and what to do about it.
Emergency hospital services are available 24 hours a day without an appointment. Look for the emergency or casualty signs:
