our-services-urgent-care-external-signageAfter Hours service:

Stawell Medical Centre provides after hours services through the Urgent Care Centre at the Stawell Hospital. 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.

New Risk Prevention Program Available at Stawell Medical Centre: 

Recognising the importance of screening, Stawell Medical Centre is participating in an Australian Practice Nurse Association and Primary Health Network project to set up a risk prevention program for people living in the region aged 45 to 49 years. The program is fully funded by Medicare including the screening so there will be no cost to the patient. Click here for more information.
