Acute Illness & Injury

Please let reception know if you have an acute illness or injury. In some cases we will advise you to attend hospital for medical reasons rather than come into the clinic. In an emergency, always call 000.

Acute Illness & Injury include:

  • Diagnosis of acute medical and surgical conditions

    Many conditions are painful or acute, however, they may not warrant a trip to the emergency department. If you’re experiencing pain, injury or illness and you consider your medical needs to be urgent but not an emergency, we can assist with diagnosis and ongoing management. This service may include referrals to a hospital or other health professional.

  • Asthma

    While we provide comprehensive, ongoing asthma management, we also understand that this condition often presents the need for more urgent medical care. If you’re experiencing asthma difficulties that don’t require emergency assistance, we can assist you with acute asthma care services.

  • Allergy

    Almost 20% of Australians suffer from at least one kind of allergy. Often, these conditions can be managed with ongoing support, knowledge and/or medication. However, sometimes allergic reactions can be far more serious. Allergies can also be scary if you’ve never had a reaction before. For diagnosis of allergies and reactions, we can help. We will always suggest attending hospital or calling 000 if your reaction appears life-threatening.

  • Sutures

    Following surgery or treatment for serious injury, you will often need sutures removed. Many modern sutures are dissolvable and do not require removal, however, if you’ve been instructed by a health professional to have sutures check or removed after a certain amount of time, we’re here to help.

  • Sporting injuries

    We love our sport in Australia, but unfortunately, that also means the risk of acute injury. If you’ve injured yourself during sporting or fitness activities and you don’t require emergency care, Stirling Central Health Clinic is here to help. We can help to diagnose injuries, as well as recommending the appropriate next steps to get you back on your feet.

  • Fracture assessment

    Many fractures and broken bones are often difficult to diagnose for the untrained person. This is because many such injuries are accompanied by rapid swelling or bruising, and it can be difficult to determine if a fracture has occurred. If you’ve suffered an impact injury and you’re unsure if there’s a fracture, we can help. Our medical professionals assist in the identification and diagnosis of fractures and also handle ongoing treatment and management.

  • Workplace injuries (WorkCover)

    If you’ve been injured at work, it’s important to seek appropriate medical assistance as soon as possible. This is to ensure proper records and documentation required by WorkCover to assist with any financial impacts the injury may cause.

  • Motor vehicle accident claims

    Much like WorkCover, it’s important to have all the right documentation and records if you’re involved in a motor vehicle accident. Even if your injuries seem minor at the time, they could develop into something worse or have long-term effects. We’ll advise the appropriate level of care required following a motor vehicle accident.
