Medicare Urgent Care Clinics in Midland, Murdoch and Bunbury
About this Opportunity:
WA Primary Health Alliance (WAPHA) is seeking submissions from existing general practices and Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Services to establish Medicare Urgent Care Clinics in Midland, Murdoch and Bunbury.
A Medicare UCC provides clinically appropriate community-based and patient-centred care to eligible patients with urgent non-life-threatening illnesses and injuries (ED triage category 4 & 5) who would have otherwise attended a WA ED to seek treatment.
Medicare UCCs uniquely distinguish their services from usual care general practices as they provide short term, episodic care for non-life-threatening urgent conditions requiring same day assessment or treatment. Once a patient has been treated at a UCC, they will be discharged, and ongoing management and clinical care will be handed over to the patient’s usual GP.
Medicare UCCs are required to have extended hours of operation, walk-in treatment availability, and adhere to the minimum standards as referenced in the Australian Government Department of Health and Aged Care Operational Guidance for Urgent Care Clinics (the Guidance).
