Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Expect it and Respect it

Due to the current COVID situation with Melbourne Metro and Mitchell Shire going into lockdown, our team at SM will be asking some routine questions as part of our screening process to help keep everyone safe.

We’d like to thank our patients for their patience as we follow this process.

***COMMUNITY ANNOUNCEMENT***


To ensure the safety of our community, Springs Medical is implementing preventative measures including our phone consultation model to support patients experiencing symptoms of cold and flu.

Rather than attending our Clinics, our reception will make a phone appointment for you. During the phone consultation, your GP will discuss your symptoms, ask questions about your recent travel history and provide a plan for your treatment. Medical certificates can be prepared and left for collection – your GP can discuss this further with you.

If your GP feels you should be tested for coronavirus, they may advise you to attend Ballarat Base Hospital for testing.
Please DO NOT ATTEND Springs Medical Clinics if you are experiencing symptoms of the cold and flu.

If you already have an appointment, PLEASE CALL US and we will arrange for a phone consultation.

If you are concerned that you may have Coronavirus, please call the Coronavirus hotline on 1800 675 398.
Thank you for your co-operation.
