Urgent Medical Care
After-hours medical clinic with urgent doctors available
St John Urgent Care centres allow for patients with non-life threatening injuries or illnesses to be seen by a doctor in a primary setting and receive the most appropriate care without the need to attend an emergency department.
The centres offer a high quality, safe and timely alternate care pathway for unscheduled care, and if necessary, x-rays, pathology and follow-up treatments such as plaster, urgent dental and stitches onsite.
Each Urgent Care centre is staffed by a team of highly skilled doctors, nurses and paramedics that will be able to see and treat walk-in patients at the Cockburn, Joondalup and Armadale clinics.
St John Urgent Care centres are open 7 days a week, 8am – 10pm (Cockburn and Joondalup) and 10am - 6pm (Armadale). No appointment is necessary and you will be bulk billed if you bring your current Medicare card (bulk billing is only made available for current Medicare cardholders where a benefit exists).
