ADELAIDE CENTRAL RESPIRATORY CLINIC
FREE GP ASSESSMENT SERVICE
WHO SHOULD BE SEEN AT A RESPIRATORY CLINIC?
The clinic sees patients with mild / moderate respiratory symptoms which include ANY of the following:
Runny nose / Nasal congestion
Body aches and pains
Loss or change in taste or smell
From the week of 19/11/2020 onwards the clinic also sees asymptomatic patients that have been linked to the Parafield Cluster (ie patients with no symptoms at all).
WHAT HAPPENS AT THE CLINIC?
You will be assessed and managed by a GP and provided advice and a management plan. You will be referred back to your regular GP for ongoing management thereafter.
The dedicated independent facility has no waiting room and there is minimal interaction with any other suspect patients with similar symptoms
A swab for COVID19 can be conducted on site as necessary
The clinic is open Monday - Saturday 830am - 430pm. Attendance is by appointment only. Walk in patients will not be seen and will be unable to attend the facility
WHEN WILL MY RESULTS BE AVAILABLE?
If you have attended the clinic and had a swab taken for COVID19, your results will be available and sent as a SMS text message to you within 3 days (and usually within 24 hours). If you have not received your results within this time then please contact the clinic directly.
Unfortunately, due to the increased testing occurring in South Australia as a result of the Parafield Cluster, the laboratory has had delays in processing swabs and releasing results. We apologise for the inconvenience this may have caused.
