Free urgent care is now available in Carlton

Carlton Urgent Care Service opened on Tuesday, 30 January 2024. Urgent care is for health issues that are not life-threatening but need urgent medical attention. When it’s not an emergency but you can’t wait for your GP, urgent care gives you the treatment you need quickly, without waiting in an emergency department.

The service was officially launched on Monday, April 1 2024 by NSW Premier Chris Minns.

The Carlton Urgent Care Service is a free service that will integrate with other health services and organisations in the St George region, including local primary care providers and St George Hospital.

“The new Carlton Urgent Care Service will mean the local community can receive care quickly for conditions which can be safely and appropriately treated outside of our busy EDs,” NSW Premier and Kogarah MP, Chris Minns said.

Central Eastern Sydney Primary Health Network CEO Nathalie Hansen said the service is designed to bridge the gap for patients between primary care and emergency care, ensuring patients not able to see their usual GP receive fast access to urgent care without waiting in the emergency department.

“We encourage community members who need access to fast medical attention for conditions that are not life-threatening, but which shouldn’t be left untreated, to access the Carlton Urgent Care Service,” she said.

The Carlton service is located at 354 Railway Parade, Carlton and is open 7 days a week, 8.00 am – 8.00 pm.
