COVID-19 Respiratory Clinic in Erina
Central Coast Primary Care is opening COVID-19 Respiratory Clinic in Erina
Central Coast Primary Care is opening the Central Coast COVID-19 Respiratory Clinic in Erina on Friday 1st May. The Clinic will be operated from the grounds of the EV Church at 331 Terrigal Drive, Erina.
As part of the Australian Governments roll out of GP-led Respiratory Clinics, Central Coast Primary Care has been successful in their proposal to operate the only federally-funded respiratory clinic on the Central Coast for an initial three-month period.
The purpose of the Respiratory Clinic is to provide a centralised and specific COVID-19 testing service. The clinic will ease the burden on local Hospitals and General Practices by providing COVID-19 testing to people who seek an assessment, without bringing them into contact with healthy members of the community in Hospital or GP waiting rooms.
Central Coast Primary Care CEO, Michelle Bradbury says “We are taking every precaution to ensure the safety of our staff and people attending the clinic. We have chosen the EV Church as a suitable location for the clinic as it provides large carparks and multiple rooms that will ensure we can keep people at a safe distance whilst being tested.”
The clinic will be operating from 10:30am to 5:30pm Monday to Sunday. “People will be encouraged to book online to make an appointment, or phone ahead, to reduce the number of people on the premises at any given time”, says Bradbury.
People can book into the clinic via the CCPC website www.ccpc.com.au from Wednesday 29th April.
