The Western NSW PHN (WNSW PHN) After Hours Program aims to improve access to primary health care outside regular operating hours. The Program enables accessible and effective care for people whose health condition is urgent and cannot wait for treatment until regular services are next available.

After Hours is:

  • before 8:00am and after 6:00pm weekdays;
  • before 8:00am and after 12:00pm Saturdays; and,
  • all day Sundays and public holidays.
