Bridges After Hours GP Clinics

Rationale

Central Coast Primary Care manages two Bridges  After Hours GP Clinics that service the Central Coast, one at Erina (est. 2002) and one at Kanwal (est. 2013). The Clinic is staffed by local GPs from local particpating practices and are fully accredited. We provide care and advice and treatment for health issues in the After Hours period that do not require a trip to the local emergency department. We deal with common health problems and illnesses that may develop suddenly such as gastro bugs, viral infections, colds and flu. We can perform minor procedures and suturing for minor accidents and injuries.
