Tas Medicare Local "After Hours App" 

I would like to bring your attention to a new app that has been developed by Tas Medicare Local called “Tas After Hours”. This app allows the user to store their own GP details as well as the resources to help get in touch with after hours and emergency medical services. The app can be downloaded by iPhone/iPad users at the ITunes App Store and by Android users from Google Web Play. You can visit the website for the app here.
