St John Urgent Care Centres allow for patients with non-life threatening injuries or illnesses to be seen by a doctor in a primary setting and receive the most appropriate care without the need to attend an emergency department.
The centres offer a high quality, safe and timely alternate care pathway for unscheduled care, and if necessary, x-rays, pathology and follow-up treatments such as plaster, urgent dental and stitches onsite.
Each Urgent Care Centre is staffed by a team of highly skilled doctors, nurses and paramedics that will be able to see and treat walk-in patients at the Cockburn, Joondalup and soon-to-be Armadale clinics.
St John Urgent Care Centres are open 7 days a week, 8am – 10pm. No appointment is necessary and you will be bulk billed if you bring your current Medicare card (bulk billing is only made available for current Medicare cardholders where a benefit exists).

What will happen when I call an ambulance?
St John Ambulance will continue to respond as usual to triple zero (000) calls in the community. However, when attending to the call paramedics will assess a patient’s unscheduled care requirements and determine the most appropriate care pathway in the best interests of the patient. This pathway may be an Urgent Care Centre or pubic hospital emergency department.
Patients will be made fully aware of the recommended approach to treatment and can discuss these options with paramedics at the time of the incident.
