Medical Emergencies

Hampstead Health Family Practice is a general practice. While Doctors and Nurses treat emergency situations that may sometimes occur during a general appointment, the practice is NOT an emergency clinic. Hampstead Health does not have all of the necessary life saving medical equipment that hospital emergency rooms have.

If you or someone you know is in a medical emergency, or you are suspecting the situation will become an emergency, you must call TRIPLE ZERO (000) immediately.

While general practices do help relieve the pressure on hospitals for minor complaints and general health care, emergencies must always be seen to by paramedics and hospital staff.
