Fast, expert medical support for Aged Care Facilities

Our senior emergency specialist doctors (FACEMs) support nurses and carers by working closely with them as medical emergency consultants. From rapid diagnosis and treatment of patients, prescribing medication, arranging referrals to specialists for non-urgent cases and even arranging patient transport (as necessary) our service can offer reassurance to resident and residential aged care facility teams alike.

As the most senior of emergency specialists, our consulting emergency physicians at My Emergency Doctor are trained to make important critical decisions - all are Fellows of the Australasian College for Emergency Medicine (FACEMS), registered with the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA) and go through a rigorous selection and credentialing process.

Additionally, they provide consultations under a robust clinical governance framework, including monthly case study review and performance management.
