Introducing Shepparton Priority Primary Care Centre (PPCC)

In Victoria our hospitals have never been busier and the PPCC will assist in taking pressure off the hospital system.

Shepparton Priority Primary Care Centre provides care for urgent but non-life threatening conditions.

GPs and nurses will assess you when you arrive. We will ensure you receive immediate care.

If you need specialist attention we will help you get to a nearby emergency department.

You do not need an appointment to be treated in a PPCC and services are free for everyone, with or without a Medicare card.

Priority Primary Care Centres are funded by the Victorian Government. Shepparton PPCC is part of the Medicare Urgent Care Clinic network.
