For emergencies, it is best to call 000. For other urgent care we are here for you 24/7, at Kyneton and Daylesford every day of the year.
At Kyneton: To reach the Urgent Care Centre please present at the nurses station. After hours access is via the security buzzer which you’ll find at the left hand side of the main hospital entrance.
At Daylesford: To reach the Urgent Care Centre, please got to the door to the left of the main hospital entrance, press the buzzer and you will be attended to.
It’s our job to make sure you access the care that is most appropriate for your circumstances. That means we’ll treat, triage or transfer patients depending on the nature of the visit and assessment of the illness or injury. If necessary we will coordinate with Ambulance Victoria for transfer by road or chopper. Kyneton has a helipad on site.
In the Urgent Care Centre, local GPs collaborate with our highly skilled nurses, and are available on call after hours. Professional care is also provided by advanced nurses including RIPERNs, (Rural and Isolated Practice Endorsed Registered Nurse) who have undertaken additional training and can provide a wider range of primary care and emergency services from rural health services.
