Get your injuries treated without the wait

Our Sports and Injury Clinic was established in 2016 to offer our community dedicated acute treatment and rehabilitation guidance for athletes and individuals recuperating from injuries sustained at work, home, or during sports activities.

Despite our efforts to prevent accidents, unforeseen circumstances sometimes lead to injuries. In such situations, we recognise the importance of prompt and effective treatment provided by professionals within a reasonable timeframe.

At CHMC Sports and Injury Clinic, we take pride in our track record of meeting these expectations for over seven years.Your Emergency GPs, after-hours GPs, and multidisciplinary team treat a wide range of injuries during opening hours with no appointment required*.

*Note: The walk-in/emergency appointments are on a first come first served basis, hence, please inform our team at the reception desk in the event of a life, limb, or eye-threatening injury to prioritise your care.
