Please note all remaining GP Respiratory Clinics (GPRC) have now closed.
As the WA health sector responds to the increase of COVID-19 infections in the community, GP Respiratory Clinics (GPRCs) are available to see your symptomatic or COVID positive patients (both adults and children) face-to-face and via telehealth.
This may be a good option if your practice cannot see them safely, reducing the risk of infection to staff and other patients. It also provides an option for COVID positive telehealth patients that you think may need a face-to-face examination that cannot be done at your practice.
GPRCs provide safe, GP led care for COVID-19, specifically:
- Assessment and testing for people with mild respiratory symptoms who might be COVID-positive
- Treatment for mild to moderate COVID-19 infection
- COVID-19 vaccinations for all eligible age groups (at participating clinics)
All services are provided with or without a Medicare card and a referral is not required.
GPRCs operate strictly by appointment, and patients are asked to attend the clinic only at the time of their booking so that social distancing can be maintained.
GPRCs form a network of 11 across WA, (and over 130 nationally), supported by WA Primary Health Alliance as part of the Federal Government’s continued primary health response to COVID-19.
