As the flu season approaches, we expect an influx of patients experiencing cold and flu like symptoms, which may be Covid-19 related. The GP’s at WBC recommend visiting any one of the respiratory clinics based in Victoria, found here, if you’d like to see a GP face to face for assessment.
The clinics support adults and children with respiratory symptoms to access a comprehensive respiratory assessment (including COVID-19 testing) and receive immediate support in management of their illness.
Services are available to people with or without a Medicare card, at no cost to the patient.
Some clinics will be open after hours and on weekends
