It’s aimed at taking some stress off the Mildura Base Public Hospital Emergency Department.

Primary Priority Care Centres are designed to operate when needed most by the community, meaning opening hours are generally based around data on ED presentations.

The Primary Priority Care Centre is at 137 Thirteenth Street, Mildura, and extended opening hours are expected in the coming weeks.
