Health, Counselling and Disability Services Opening Hours During Break


The end of the year is nigh!

Whatever your predictions for 2020 (zombie apocalypse, searing 44ºC days, the return of the colour orange), you may also want to know the opening hours for HCDS during the break.

We close at 1pm on Tuesday 24/12/19 and re-open again on Thursday 2/1/2020 at 8.45 am. That includes the doctors, counsellors and disability advisors.

I’ve been informed that I will be locked in my office during that time with the strict instructions to finish my mental fitness workbook. I’ll certainly be working on it, but there is also a good chance I’ll also eat an entire Xmas Pudding.

During the break, the Crisis Line will be available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

There are two ways to contact the line.

The first is to call 1300 512 409

The second is to send a text message to 0488 884 103

Please note also that in the final few weeks of December and into January, there are some disruptions to service because of the lift change. These have been outlined here.

For emergency and after hours health services, I’ve cut and pasted below the information from our website:
