An update on our Lockdown clinic protocol
Hacking cough? Sore throat? Runny nose?
If you or your child is unwell this winter, your local GP respiratory clinic can see you face to face and give you a treatment plan to feel better.
Please see below to find your closest GP respiratory clinic. Which are conveniently located in Footscray, Maidstone, Altona and Port Melbourne. All are fully government funded, so the consult will have no out of pocket for you. The clinics are fully subsidised by the state. It is important that vulnerable patients attending Eleanor Clinic know they can do this safely. Plenty of our patients have severe chronic health conditions, are having cancer treatment or belong to another at-risk group.
We therefore have strict hygiene protocols in place, HEPA filters in every room and strict social distancing in place. If you have ongoing symptoms and had a negative PCR test recently, we are able to see you. We know that the weather is getting chilly, so if waiting in the tent of the front garden is not comfortable, please let us know, and we will try and find a place for you inside. If you are able to wait in your car, we really appreciate that.
We would love to just open our doors, and have lots of chatter inside our waiting room and clinic again. Unfortunately, due to the high number of viruses in the community, this would not be responsible. Believe us, we are trying our best in challenging times. We are not always getting it right. But we constantly review what we are doing and improve things. We love to hear your constructive feedback! We also love to hear when we do things well. Our team at Eleanor Clinic is working really hard to provide you with the best care possible.
