Medicare UCCs are located across Australia and provide urgent, bulk billed health care. To find a Medicare Urgent Care Clinic near you, visit health.gov.au/MedicareUCC. This advertisement is communicated in Auslan.


Medicare Urgent Care Clinics are located across Australia and make it easier to access care for urgent, but not life-threatening, illnesses and injuries.

Going to a Medicare Urgent Care Clinic means you don’t have to wait at your local emergency department.

They are:

  • bulk billed, so bring your Medicare card
  • walk-in, so you don’t need an appointment or referral
  • open early and late every day
  • staffed by GPs and nurses.

Visit your local Medicare Urgent Care Clinic if you have an illness or injury that can’t wait for a regular appointment with a GP, but doesn’t require a trip to hospital.

If you or a loved one has a life-threatening injury or illness, call triple zero or go straight to your nearest emergency department. To find your nearest Medicare Urgent Care Clinic, visit health.gov.au/MedicareUCC.
