COVID-19 Patient information

RESPIRATORY CLINIC

Do you have respiratory symptoms?

Fever, cough, shortness of breath, sore throat, fatigue?

Further information can be found below.

What are GP Respiratory Clinics?

        • Respiratory Clinics are Commonwealth funded, dedicated clinics for the assessment and treatment of respiratory symptoms.

 

Who Can Make An Appointment?

        • Anyone experiencing mild to moderate respiratory symptoms – fever, cough, shortness of breath, sore throat or fatigue – can book an appointment online or over the phone.

What Are the Benefits?

Respiratory Clinics:

          • Support patients with more than COVID-19 swabbing, they provide GP assessment of respiratory symptoms
          • Allow clinical handover to patient’s usual GP for follow up care (if required)
          • Do not require GP referral or forms – patients book themselves online or over the phone
          • Provide onsite COVID-19 testing by specially trained and dedicated staff – this maximises the use of PPE across our region and helps reduce pressure on general practice (freeing up time to support the expansion of telehealth services, running of flu clinics, and ongoing chronic disease management etc.)

How Can I Make an Appointment?

        • You can make an appointment online.  Phone numbers for different clinics can be found here.
