An app to find doctors, chemists, dentists, hospitals or mental health services as quickly as possible.
Hospital emergency departments and ambulance services are the main forms of after-hours medical services available in Australia. Of course there are non-emergency health professionals that are available outside business hours but locating them can be difficult, especially when away on holidays or travelling for business. The Medi24 app can be used to find doctors, chemists, dentists, hospitals or mental health services.
Using your location through GPS from your phone, the app provides the closest listings and directions via Google Maps to get you there as quickly as possible. The operating hours are listed with the address details and you can dial direct from the phone number.
I’ve had my fair share of health issues at inconvenient times – I’ve had to take my toddler to the hospital for vomiting in the middle of the night, my husband to the GP for an infected wisdom tooth when he couldn’t get to the dentist, and tried to find medication for myself on a weekend away. This app is something I wish I’d had years ago and it’s something very reassuring to have it on my phone now. It’s a must-have for all mums and dads with smartphones.
