New emergency care option for sports injuries and other illnesses

New Priority Primary Care Centres (PPCC) are providing free GP-led care to people who need urgent care, but not an emergency response. There are two new PPCC clinics in Gippsland; one in Warragul and one in Moe.

Sports clubs may find the Latrobe PPCC or Baw Baw PPCC a better alternative to the hospital emergency department if you need urgent – but non-life threatening – care for suspected fractures, sprains, cuts or other injuries from training or game day.

The PPCCs provide urgent care for injuries and illnesses including:

  • suspected fractures and sprains
  • back and muscle pain
  • minor cuts, stitches, burns, and insect or animal bites
  • mild to moderate infections
  • fever
  • pain when urinating
  • heartburn, vomiting, nausea
  • headaches, migraines and brief fainting
  • constipation, diarrhoea, abdominal pain
  • allergies and rashes
  • light bleeding in the first trimester of pregnancy
  • mild to moderate asthma attacks, coughs and other respiratory symptoms

No appointment is needed.
