ABOUT US

Radio Doctor service originated in the Illawarra 1974 after a meeting of six local GPs who were concerned about providing quality after hours care for their patients. The service has grown to include over 280 doctors and now provides after hours health care for patients every night of the year from the Seacliff Bridge (starting at Scarborough) in the north to ShellCove in the south.
