Urgent Care / After Hours

The Ararat Medical Centre General Practitioners maintain an after hours roster for urgent problems. 

This covers after hours and all public holidays. 

Telephone the Ararat Medical Centre on 5352 2311 and follow the instructions.  It is important to phone first as many problems can be assisted by advice and do not need to be seen immediately.

The Ararat Medical Centre participates in the after hours triage service provided by the Grampians PHN. After-Hours calls are diverted to this service. All calls are initially handled by a specially trained triage clinician. 

If you have difficulty in getting through on the after-hours number, you can also call this service direct by calling the

After Hours GP Helpline on 1800 022 222

Patients with serious problems e.g. a broken limb or chest pain (of any cause) should go directly to the Urgent Care Centre at the East Grampians Health Service (hospital) or call an ambulance (000).

Patients needing attention after 5:30pm weekdays or on weekends are seen in the East Grampians Health Service (Ararat & District Hospital) Urgent Care Centre.

PLEASE NOTE: A private fee may be payable for services provided after hours.
