COVID-19 TESTING AT LOCAL ASSESSMENT CENTRES
Those experiencing COVID-19 symptoms can BOOK ONLINE or CALL to schedule a COVID-19 test at one of the local assessment centres. Scroll down for more info.
The risks that COVID-19 present means that the majority of patient visits have and will continue to be done virtually either over the phone or using a video visit. This means that most non-essential visits will not be booked in person and/or some regular scheduled non-essential bookings may be delayed. If your healthcare needs cannot be met over the phone or over video, it is at your healthcare provider's discretion to bring you in to the office. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
