Safe model for urgent care at Daylesford Hospital

Springs Medical Centre and Hepburn Health are currently in consultation to develop a safer model of care for patients requiring urgent care services at Daylesford Hospital after hours.
Springs Medical Centre and Hepburn Health have sought input from the Victorian Department of Health and Human Services, Ballarat Health Services, Ambulance Victoria, Adult Retrieval Victoria, Western Victoria Primary Health Network, expert emergency physicians, and nurses from Daylesford Hospital.

On average the urgent care centre receives four patients per week attending between the hours of 11pm and 7am. Of these no more than one person per month would require an emergency transfer to Ballarat or Melbourne.

Following a review of the quality and safety of service during these hours Springs Medical Centre and Hepburn Health have agreed to develop an improved model of care to ensure the safety of our community. The model will aim to better coordinate care between the ambulance service, Hepburn Health, Ballarat Health Services and the nurse on call so that patient care is streamlined and safe.

The model is currently being finalised and the community will be kept informed of any new arrangements. However, under the proposed new arrangements Springs Medical Centre doctors will continue to be available to attend Daylesford Hospital when required.

Trish Collocott, CEO of Hepburn Health stated that “Hepburn Health and Springs Medical Centre are working in partnership to develop a best practice model of care for the community that will ensure patients safety and continued quality of service. Many small rural hospitals across the State relying on general practitioners to provide an overnight urgent care service are undertaking a similar process and the proposed model will be in line with best practice.”
