Over the last Three Years in addition to General Practice, Health Hub Doctors Morayfield have been providing Urgent Care services as a service to the region.
However, Urgent Care services have operated at a substantial loss because of the inadequate funding provided by the Government to this type of care. Despite extensive discussions with both levels of Government, there is a lack of support from the State & Federal Governments for our Minor Accident & Illness Centre to continue.
Therefore, sadly, it will be closing as of 1st October 2021.
We will no longer be seeing patients requiring urgent care services for non-life-threatening conditions as of this date.
This includes injuries and illnesses such as:
- Broken bones,
- Acute severe pain,
- Major psychiatric disorders,
- Serious eye and ear injuries, and
- More major strains and sprains
As well as minor procedures such as:
- Plastering/casting facilities,
- Large wound suturing, and
- Fracture management
