About SACC

Sandringham Ambulatory Care Centre was established in 2017 in order to better aid the Bayside community by taking pressure off the emergency department,  seeing patients with minor injuries such as fractures, skin infections and wound management.

With the COVID-19 Pandemic in 2020 we assisted the Bayside community by operating pop up and permanent testing clinic and later in the Vaccination drive the Sandringham Vaccination Centre.

In 2021 we extended our original idea of SACC to Ambulatory Care @ The Kids to operate a similar service at the Royal Children’s Hospital alleviating strain on Hospital staff.
