GPcare After Hours Service

GPcare After Hours Service provides the local community with access to general practice services outside of normal business hours.
The after hours service has been available for more than 10 years and is coordinated by Summit Health.

A core group of local GPs from across the Adelaide Hills work cooperatively to provide their community with urgent after hours medical assistance 7 days a week, 365 days a year when their local GP service may not be available .

The GPcare After Hours Service is provided from both the Summit Health Centre and the Mt Barker Hospital.


The total fee for your visit will depend on the service provided.

For consultations at the Summit Health Centre full payment on the day is required.

EFTPOS and Medicare Easyclaim and facilities enabling your rebate to be paid directly into your account on the day of your visit are available.

 For consultations at Mt Barker Hospital an account will be sent to you the day after your clinic visit.


Appointments can be made on the day for clinics at the Summit Health Centre by calling 1300 GPCARE (1300 472 273). Please note that patients may be seen in order of urgency rather than at scheduled appointment times.

Appointments cannot be made in advance for clinics at the Mt Barker Hospital. These clinics are a walk-in service only.

GPcare After Hours doctors may occasionally be called to assist with an emergency at the hospital or elsewhere. Such instances are outside our control and we ask for your patience at these times. We will endeavour to keep you informed during these instances.
