Are you finding it hard to get an appointment with local Gunnedah doctors? GoCo offers regular, affordable transport assistance to the Gunnedah community with the Doctors Run.
GoCo has partnered with North West Health in Tamworth and Ochre Medical Centre in Boggabri to reserve set GoCo Client appointments on regular days of the week.
This will enable clients to be collected from their homes by the GoCo Bus to attend doctor appointments without experiencing long wait times between clients before being transported home.
The services are possible thanks to a dedicated team of GoCo Volunteers who give up their time to drive clients to Tamworth and Boggabri.
Clients will book their doctors appointment directly with North West Health at East Tamworth Medical Centre or Ochre Medical Centre in Boggabri on the designated days using a special GoCo reference.
Clients will then contact GoCo to book their seat on the GoCo Doctors Run.
The GoCo Doctors Run is for new and existing GoCo clients and is available for both community members and older people eligible through My Aged Care.
All GoCo Doctors Run trips require client to contribute to the cost in the form of fees outlined in GoCo’s fee schedule.
Commencing March 2021
