A takeover deal has seen two of Australia’s after-hours providers join together with a combined GP workforce of around 400.

GP-led DoctorSquare, which was formerly owned by Sonic Health, has secured 24/7 Healthcare: a 30-year-old company that runs after-hours corporate 13Sick and a telehealth service.
