Macedon Ranges locals have rallied behind our health service to help set up a Respiratory Assessment Clinic in our old Ambulance Bay.
The new clinic strengthens our response to the coronavirus outbreak, allowing us to continue to safely assess patients who present with risk factors or concerns about the Coronavirus.
Our local community have been amazing helping us build three assessment rooms in record time. We want to thank Campaspe Family Practice, Kennedy Co, Home Timber and Hardware Kyneton, Macedon Ranges, Plumbing, Bryan Law Electrical, Amp-Up Electrical and Flooring Xtra. We can't thank them enough for everything they’ve done!
The clinic will initially operate Monday to Friday between 1pm and 3.30pm, evolving with the needs of the community.
If you are concerned about symptoms associated with the Coronavirus, please call ahead on 5422 9900 to speak to a nurse who will be able to give the best advice for each situation. Patients who meet the clinical criteria will be booked in for an appointment for testing.
As always, anyone who has serious symptoms, such as difficulty breathing, should call 000 immediately and ask for an ambulance.
