The Albanese Government is making it cheaper and easier for Northsiders to get urgent treatment at short notice, free under Medicare with the opening of the Kedron Urgent Care Clinic.
The Northside Medicare Urgent Care Clinic has already started providing care for Lilley residents.
Urgent care is when you need medical attention for an illness or injury that can’t wait for a regular appointment with a GP, but doesn’t require a visit to hospital.
This includes things like minor fractures, sprains, minor infections, respiratory illnesses, mild burns, severe stomach pains, or urinary tract infections.
Medicare Urgent Care Clinics are helping take pressure off hospital emergency departments.
The Albanese Government is continuing to strengthen Medicare and ensure Lilley families get the medical care they need, when they need it.
The Northside Medicare Urgent Care Clinic is located at 136 Gympie Rd, Kedron and is open 8am-8pm seven days a week. Visit the clinic’s website: Northside Urgent Care in Kedron | 7 Days Free Care (northsidemedicareurgentcareclinic.com.au) for more information.
If you or a loved one has a life-threatening injury or illness, do not attend a Medicare Urgent Care Clinic. Call triple zero (000) or go to your nearest emergency department.
