We're closed - then what? Priority Primary Care Centres



What are PPCCs?

The PPCC initiative aims to reduce demand on hospital emergency departments by providing a primary care service for urgent conditions that do not require an emergency response. PPCCs are GP-led services that increase access to primary care and provide care for people with conditions such as mild infections, fractures and burns.


PPCCs may be stand-alone clinics or operate as part of a GP clinic or community health service. The Centres will be open for extended hours (up to 16 hours per day), 7 days a week and free for people of all ages (with and without a Medicare card).


The clinics are supporting nearby hospital emergency departments by providing GP-led care for urgent but non-life-threatening conditions such as mild infections, fractures and burns. They also offer pathology and imaging services onsite or nearby.


Care is be available to anyone with or without a Medicare card, at no cost to the patient. (Costs may be required for imaging, pathology and other services.)
