Our Minor Trauma Centre Services
The Kallangur minor trauma centre exists to provide the local community with a hospital alternative for minor accident and casualty care. We cater to urgent walk-ins all day, 7 days a week. A non-urgent after-hours walk-in service is also offered Monday-Friday. Our services are bulk billed, so it won’t cost you an arm or a leg to attend our clinic.
In the event of an emergency, where a person’s condition is life or limb threatening always call Triple Zero (000) or head straight to a hospital. When urgent doesn’t mean an emergency, then we could help you avoid a trip to the hospital. Learn more about what the MTC is on our About page.
To extend our service offering we are partnered with Kallangur X-Ray to offer after hours x-rays and fracture care. Kallangur X-Ray bulk bill all x-rays during their regular business hours, however a $20 gap fee applies to after-hours x-ray from 5pm on weekdays and all day on weekends or public holidays. These after hours x-rays are only available to Kallangur MTC patients and is not offered to the general public.
Our After Hours GP Services
Our after hours doctors offer both walk-in and select appointments. However, we determine priority by triage, meaning those with urgent and critical needs are seen by our doctors first. You can access our after hours GP services for a variety of medical conditions ranging from the common cold to more serious injuries like cuts and burns.
Immunisations and occupational medicals are not available after-hours. For these services you will need to book an appointment with the Family Practice at Kallangur during regular practice hours.
If you would like an idea of wait times before arriving, please phone us on 3204 4222.
Both our Minor Trauma and After hours services can cover you for:
Falls, tumbles, spills and tackles
Whether it’s a work injury, sporting injury or everyday bad luck we know it can happen at any time and result in discomfort, pain and limited mobility. Instead of waiting hours at a hospital you can receive triage within minutes at the MTC. Our onsite x-ray service and talented team are available after-hours and on weekends to ensure that you are properly treated when you need it. We are even able to provide plaster cast application, however, we do not manage fractures and will refer to a fracture clinic for on-going fracture care.
Cuts, burns, lacerations or punctures
Minor and moderate wounds are not only painful, they also need proper care in order to prevent infection. We can clean, stitch and dress a variety wounds so you can avoid a trip to the hospital.
Fevers, rashes, bumps and bruises
There is nothing worse than seeing your little one sick or injured and having to wait hours for medical care. That is why we have a baby and infant drop-in service and a triage system that sees you receive the care you need quickly. If your child has an extremely high temperature, breathing difficulties or severe dehydration please notify our reception on arrival.
