It’s your first stop for unplanned medical attention. Professional care is provided by our highly skilled nurses, many of whom are Rural and Isolated Practice Registered Nurses (RIPRNs). RIPRNs a specially trained to provide a wider range of primary care and emergency services for rural communities.
The Kyneton UCC teams work with local GPs who are available on-call for phone consultations or visits. Daylesford UCC provides nurse-led care with local GP support available on call during the following times:
Outside of these hours, medical support is provided via tele-health.

We triage, treat or transfer patients depending on the nature of the visit and assessment of the illness or injury.
The sort of conditions we can assess include:
Urgent Care Centres are not like Emergency Departments in large hospitals. Fees may apply for some services.
Radiology and pathology test are normally bulk billed. Fees may apply after-hours.
If you are seen by a doctor you may be charged a fee. If a fee is charged, this will be discussed with you prior to treatment.
Serious medical conditions may require transfer by ambulance to a larger hospital. We strongly recommended you have an Ambulance Victoria membership. Not all private health cover includes ambulance cover.
What if I can’t pay?
It is not the intention of our local doctors to deny appropriate medical care to patients with urgent care
needs. At the individual doctor’s discretion, the consultation may be bulk-billed. Please check with the doctor before the consultation commences if you are unable to pay.
