Urgent Care Closed Until Further Notice

September 30, 2021

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:

  • Burns,
  • Lacerations/Cuts/Abrasions,
  • Broken bones,
  • Dislocations,
  • 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

Health Hub Doctors Morayfield will revert to a normal General Practice.

All minor accident & illness patients should now go directly to Caboolture or Redcliffe Emergency Departments for treatment.

The Queensland Ambulance Service (QAS) also will no longer be dropping urgent care patients to our clinic. 



Health Hub Doctors Morayfield, Mum and Bub Hub Morayfield, and Morayfield Family Doctors will continue to operate as usual with Opening Hours:

8am - 8pm 7 days a week, 365 days a year
