New daily fever and respiratory clinics have started here at QMSC!
They will be held Monday to Friday: 9.00am – 12.00am, 2.00pm – 5.00pm and Saturday mornings. (bulk billed)
At the time you phone to make an appointment you will be asked a series of questions by our dedicated reception team. This includes questions about your recent travel interstate, overseas or cruise in the past 14 days, any recent exposure to a person confirmed with coronavirus. If you answer “NO” to these questions our reception team member will then go on to ask if you have any of the following:
- Cold or Flu Symptoms
- Sore throat
- Shortness of Breath
If you answer “YES’ to any of the above our reception team will offer you an appointment in our dedicated Fever Clinic. This may not be with your regular preferred doctor but want to reassure you that your regular treating doctor will have access to this visit in your clinical record.
If however you have traveled overseas in the past 14 days, returned from a cruise ship or returned from interstate after the 24/03/20 or been in close contact with a patient with COVID-19, our team will still direct you to the COVID clinics.
