New GP-led respiratory clinic opens in Warrnambool
A new GP-led respiratory clinic in Warrnambool has launched, to test suspected COVID-19 cases in the Great South Coast region.
The new Great South Coast Respiratory Clinic has been set up in Lava Street, as part of the Australian Government’s $2.4 billion health package in response to the COVID-19 outbreak.
“We saw this as a great opportunity to play an important role to ensure the safety of our community and support our primary care colleagues" said Great South Coast Respiratory Clinic Manager Delna Plathottam.
"By offering a community-based COVID-19 screening alternative, we are reducing the risk of symptomatic patients presenting at a general practice".
