Flu vaccinations are now available at Hillscene Family Medical Centre for all members of the community. In light of the current COVID-19 pandemic situation and supported by advice from the Australian Health Department, we encourage everyone to get their flu shots this year.

Doing this reduces the severity and spread of the seasonal influenza, which can lower a person’s immunity and make them more susceptible to other illnesses, such as the Coronavirus. Getting vaccinated will also help to mitigate the pressure on our healthcare system, which is currently dealing with almost 1000 cases of Coronavirus.

We encourage everyone to schedule an appointment online 24/7 or call us during business hours to book an appointment for your flu vaccine.


Our much anticipated extended opening hours begins this Saturday 21 March 2020.

We will be open from 9am – 4pm. We are excited to serve the community of Belgrave and our surrounding suburbs better with increased access to primary healthcare needs for the community.

Thank you to the community of Belgrave and our surrounding suburbs for continuing their support for our clinic!



In response to the Coronavirus pandemic, HFMC is now able to have telehealth consultations.

Please follow this procedure beginning Thursday 19th March 2020:

1) Come in to register attendance or if you are attending with someone healthy, send them on your behalf
2) Confirm your mobile phone number with Reception staff
3) Go back to your car and wait for the doctor to call you
4) Describe your symptoms as clearly and as accurately as possible, to avoid any risks of misdiagnosis
5) The doctor will advise if you need to come back into the clinic for further examination in an isolated room, or to collect a script/referral/certificate
6) Follow medical advice, and we wish you a speedy recovery!

Kindly adhere to this procedure as it has been carefully curated to avoid any potential contact for the health and safety of the patients, doctors, staff, and the community.

If at any time you are unsure, please don’t hesitate to give us a call to clarify.



Hillscene Family Medical Centre is taking further precautions for our staff and patients as the WHO have now declared COVID-19 as a pandemic.

If you have returned from overseas since the 1st of Feb 2020 (or have been in contact with anyone who has) and have been experiencing symptoms such as fever, cough, sore throat, and noticeable shortness of breath, don’t go straight to your doctor’s office – that just risks spreading the virus and making more people sick. Call ahead, and ask if you need to be seen and where.
