Residents living in the northern Illawarra will now have more options to access timely medical care with the Bulli Urgent Care Centre extending its operating hours to six days a week, from this weekend.

NSW Health Minister Ryan Park said the extended hours was an important first step towards re-establishing seven-day-a-week coverage at the Bulli Urgent Care Centre (UCC).

“More than 42,000 people presented to emergency departments across the Illawarra and Shoalhaven between January and March this year,” Mr Park said.

“We know a significant portion of those patients could have avoided the ED altogether if they had an alternative model of care, such as the Bulli Urgent Care Centre.

“Having the centre open six days a week will help patients access faster care and will help ease the pressure on our emergency departments.
