Medicare Urgent Care Clinics | South Australia

Where to go for urgent health appointments in South Australia.

Medicare Urgent Care Clinics (Medicare UCC) give you more options to see a doctor or nurse when you need care for urgent, but not life-threatening health conditions, and cannot get an appointment at your usual GP.

You can walk into any Medicare Urgent Care Clinic for bulk billed urgent care without the need for an appointment or referral.

Urgent care is when you need medical attention for an illness or injury that can be managed without a trip to the emergency department but cannot wait for a regular appointment with a GP.

Medicare Urgent Care Clinics provide acute episodic care and treatment that does not require a hospital admission. This may include:

  • minor infections
  • minor fractures, sprains, sports injuries and neck and back pain
  • urinary tract infections (UTIs)
  • sexually transmitted infections (STIs)
  • minor cuts
  • insect bites and rashes
  • minor eye and ear infections
  • respiratory illness
  • gastroenteritis
  • mild burns

Medicare Urgent Care Clinics won’t be able to see people for major trauma or complex conditions. Your GP should be your first point of contact for routine and preventable health care.


Medicare Urgent Care Clinics open 7 days a week, from 10am to 8pm.
