Launceston Medicare Urgent Care Clinic

The Launceston Medicare Urgent Care Clinic is run by the Launceston Medical Centre with funding from The Australian Government.
Our clinic provides care for people with urgent, but non-life-threatening, medical needs who can’t wait to see their regular GP, but don’t need to go to the Emergency Department (ED).

Examples of non-life-threatening conditions, include;

  • ear, eye, nose, and throat infections
  • respiratory problems e.g., asthma, breathing difficulties
  • stings, bites, and rashes
  • acute muscle and joint pain
  • abrasions and lacerations
  • urinary tract infections
  • gastrointestinal illnesses

Each patient is triaged by a nurse who will then prioritise the time in which you need to be seen, based on the severity of your condition. Patients are not always seen in the order that they arrive and wait times may vary.

  • We accept walk-in patients, with no appointment required
  • We are open seven days a week, from 2pm – 8pm daily
  • Eligible patients are bulk-billed, meaning there is no cost to the patient.

Medicare Urgent Care Clinics are not an emergency service.

If you require emergency care call Triple Zero (000) or make your way to the nearest ED.
