Our General Practice Respiratory Clinic is open at our Northcote health centre.
Our Respiratory Clinic provides medical care and support to people with breathing and lung issues such as:
- Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease
- Shortness of breath
- COVID-like symptoms.
Our Respiratory Clinic does not provide COVID-19 testing for asymptomatic patients. If you do not have respiratory symptoms and require a COVID-19 test only, an appropriate testing location can be found here: www.coronavirus.vic.gov.au/where-get-tested-covid-19.
What services do the Respiratory Clinic provide?
The general practitioners and nurses at our Respiratory Clinic offer the following services to people with or without a Medicare card at no cost:
- Provide a comprehensive respiratory assessment of symptomatic clients, including COVID-19 testing.
- Offer immediate support to help clients manage their illness.
- Refer clients back to their usual GP for ongoing care or assist in identifying a GP if they don’t already have one.
Please note this is not a testing centre. We do not provide assessment or testing for asymptomatic patients.
