Njernda Medical Clinic has launched an after-hours service for the community.

The clinic will run on Mondays and Wednesdays until 8pm and is open to everyone in Echuca-Moama.

Serviced by two doctors on an alternating roster, as well as a nurse and receptionist, the after-hours clinic will offer a range of medical services.

It also provides bulk-billing services for clients.

‘‘There are many people who have medical concerns outside normal GP hours,’’ a Njernda spokesperson said.

‘‘This service aims to reduce waiting times for people, instead of them sitting at the emergency ward waiting to be seen.

‘‘The clinic is open to all indigenous and non-indigenous people.’’

Njernda Medical Clinic is in Hare St, Echuca.

For appointments, call 54806252.
