Urgent Care

The Urgent Care Centre in Bright operates 24 hours a day 7 days per week. This service is led by a clinical team of highly skilled nurses, with private practice on-call doctors and other emergency service supports. 

We encourage all community members and visitors to the Bright and surrounds to seek non-urgent medical advice during business hours from a GP as out of pocket costs may apply.

Surgical Services

Surgical services operate at Alpine Health on the 1st Tuesday & 3rd Wednesday of the month.  Alternating visiting specialists are Mr Matthew Shears, General Surgeon with Dr Phil MacLeish, General Physician for endoscopic procedures.

Specialities include general minor surgery, gastro intestinal endoscopy.

Alpine Health is a small rural health service, therefore we are limited as to what and whom we perform surgery on.  Patients who have a Body Mass Index (BMI) greater than 40 will not be able to have any form of sedation anaesthetic.  Any person who has concurrent medical problems may not be appropriate to have surgery at Alpine Health.

Most procedures performed are minor and day stay procedures.
