An experienced Registered Nurse will triage a patient who presents to the Urgent Care Centre and, when required, will telephone the doctor on call for advice or to request the doctor attend in person to assess the patient.

This service is not government funded. To partially cover the costs of this excellent service, there is an out of pocket fee of $50 which needs to be paid by everyone who sees a doctor.
