At the GP Clinic Bendigo we are committed to providing our registered patients ongoing care during the Coronavirus Pandemic. We appreciate your support and understanding during this quickly evolving and changing time. Over the coming weeks and months, there may be times where our reception staff will contact you and ask you to change your non urgent appointment time, or registration visit, so our Doctors are able to provide care to patients at high risk of serious illness or are very unwell.
To manage the increased number of patients presenting with respiratory symptoms and to ensure that well patients and our staff are protected from the possible transmission of the Coronavirus, all patients will need to have preliminary screening completed before they enter the clinic. We are also providing a dedicated respiratory clinic most days of the week, where we are able to assess patients with respiratory symptoms in a dedicated area in the clinic away from our routine appointments.
To reduce the requirement of patients having to present to the clinic for appointments, if you are home isolating or at an increased risk of severe infection such as those over 70 years, or those with a chronic medical illness or a parent of a child under 12 months of age, our doctors are able to provide a consultation over the phone.
If you have been in contact with a confirmed case of Coronavirus or you have travelled overseas in the past 14 days DO NOT present to the clinic, you should call the Coronavirus Hotline on 1800 675 398.
