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.
Please isolate yourself and call one of these five established Melbourne Hospitals as they have set up screening clinics:
Austin Hospital 03 94965000
Box Hill Hospital 1300 342 255
The Alfred Hospital 03 90762000
The Royal Melbourne Hospital 03 93427568
Monash Clayton 03 95946666
