General practice respiratory clinics

Winter 2022 communications pack

Melbourne’s hospitals are under pressure. Surges in COVID-19, influenza, and other respiratory viruses could overload the hospital system in 2022.

It is crucial that we direct people with mild respiratory issues to a general practice this winter. Where general practices and other health services are not equipped to see such patients face to face, GP respiratory clinics can – and they now operate at many locations across metropolitan Melbourne.

Visit nwmphn.org.au/gprcs for more information, locations and booking links.
