Our General Practice Respiratory Clinics are now open at our East Reservoir and Northcote health centres.
Our Respiratory Clinics provide 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 Clinics do 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 Clinics provide?
The general practitioners and nurses at our Respiratory Clinics 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.
