MEDICAL CARE

FOR ALL EMERGENCIES CALL 000

Falls Creek operates a dedicated medical centre during the winter season for general practice consultations and emergency medical services. The Medical centre is staffed by experienced doctors for general practice consultations and snow sports injuries. X-ray facilities are also available. Patients are seen in order of arrival and medical priority so appointments are not made.

Located on the Bogong High Plains Rd, the Falls Creek Medical Centre is close to the bottom of the Gully Chairlift.

You can contact the centre directly by calling (03) 5758 3238.

OPERATING HOURS

The Medical Centre is open every day during the snow season for GP consultations between 10am - 12:30pm and 2pm - 4:45pm.

During Summer, the medical centre is closed and the phone will be diverted to Mt Beauty Medical Centre. Appointments are available year round in Mt Beauty by calling (03) 5754 3400.

AFTER HOURS CARE

During the winter season a doctor is available at all times for urgent problems. All after hour phone calls are directed to a mobile number; please be prepared to write down instructions.

An ambulance is available on the mountain (ambulance insurance is recommended for all visitors and mountain staff).

FALLS CREEK SKI PATROL

Falls Creek's Ski Patrol are the first people on the slopes each morning and the last off the hill at the end of the day. They are there to monitor the mountain safety and ensure your alpine experience is as just as safe as it is fun.

All Falls Creek Ski Patrollers are trained professionals and qualified to deal with any emergency that may arise. Like all sporting activities, there are inherent dangers involved with skiing and snowboarding, Ski Patrol are your best friend should you find yourself in need of assistance.

Look out for Falls Creek's Ski Patrollers in their distinctive red and white jackets as you make your way around the skifields, they are never far away

GETTING HELP FROM SKI PATROL

If you are in need of Ski Patrol;

  • Call 03 5758 3502 - this will connect you to the emergency Patrol dispatch hotline
  • Ask a lift attendant to radio for Ski Patrol - there will be an attendant at the top and bottom of each operating lift
  • You can also head to Ski Patrol base - this is located at the top of the Monkey Bar Poma (inbetween Cloud 9 and Scotts Chair)

If there is a person involved in an accident or with a suspected injury on the slopes make sure you:

  • Take a pair of skis and create a cross several metres uphill of the injured person.
  • If there are only snowboards on hand you should lay these upside down uphill of the person.

This will assist Ski Patrol in locating you and alert other skiers and snowboarders to keep clear of the injured person.

PHARMACY SERVICES

The nearest pharmacist is in Mt Beauty. During winter scripts can be filled and sent to Falls Creek by delivery service (this is not available in summer).

Delivered scripts can be collected from Falls Creek Resort Management 7 days a week from 9am to 5pm.

Some non-prescription items are available from the Falls Creek Medical Centre. However, prescription items can only be issued following a consultation with a doctor (available at the Medical Centre).
