Community Health Program Changes

As part of our response to the COVID-19 pandemic, and the increasing number of positive cases in our local community, some of the services provided by our Community Health team are currently being impacted. Many of our Community Health team are now working in a variety of roles to support our response to the pandemic, including caring for people with COVID-19.

We understand it is disappointing to have your appointment, or group program cancelled. If your appointment is affected, you will be contacted directly by a member of our team. We will re-schedule appointments as soon as we are able to. If you have any questions please contact us directly on 1300 665 781.

If you, or someone you care for, deteriorates or experiences a change in their condition, please contact your GP in the first instance or if the situation is an emergency, please dial Triple-Zero immediately. If you need to contact Community Health to advise us of a change in your condition or circumstances, you can still reach us on 1300 665 781.

Our dedicated health care teams are doing their best to keep you and your loved ones safe and well across Frankston and the Mornington Peninsula. Please be considerate and kind to our staff during this difficult time.
