For concerned community members who have accessed this page for advice regarding Coronavirus;

PLEASE DO NOT CALL THE EMERGENCY DEPARTMENT

The Emergency Department Phone Numbers are needed for patient care in the case of emergency

·         The DHHS Coronavirus hotline (Tel 1800 675 398) is available for patient advice 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. 

·         You can complete the Department of Health and Human Services online self-assessment to see if it is recommended that you are tested for Covid-19. There is also a Department of Health and Human Services website for further information.

·         CALL ( don’t just turn up to) your GP clinic. Most GP clinics will give you all the advice that you need over the phone. They will also let you know if and where you may need to be seen and/or tested for Coronavirus.

GPs and hospitals follow the same sensible strict testing guidelines.

If you do not need a test that is good news and even better for you if you have found out over the phone rather than being exposed to others by turning up to a health service unnecessarily.
