Mansfield District Hospital is fortunate to have the services of local general practitioner anaesthetists to support this service, a sterilizing technician and a team of highly trained and devoted nursing staff to cover the demands of the day stay unit, theatre and sterilizing department.

Urgent Care Centre

Staffed by Registered Nurses, each trained in Basic Life Support and many with additional training in First Line Emergency Care, the centre is supported by local GPs. You will incur a cost for being seen by a doctor. You will also incur a cost if you require additional tests, such as x-rays, and will be billed directly by the local medical clinics.

When you arrive in the Urgent Care Centre your care will be prioritised according to the severity of your illness or injury. Unless it is a life-threatening emergency or an urgent case, you may not see a doctor. Your care may be provided by a Registered Nurse or the doctor may instruct hospital staff to ask you to make an appointment at the medical clinic the next working day if your condition is considered non-urgent.
