  • You are over 70 years old

  • You are at over 50 years old and you are of Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander descent;

  • You are pregnant

  • You are the parent of a child under 12 months

  • You are already under treatment for a chronic health condition or you are immune compromised

  • Or if you have been triaged as having a suspected COVID-19, or coronavirus, infection.

  • You have returned from overseas on or after the 16th March 2020 and self-isolating at home.

If you meet any of these criteria, you can book a Telehealth appointment on our website or by phoning the practice.


Burwood Healthcare is continuing to work hard to bring you all your healthcare needs during this time. We are constantly working to keep our practice safe for all visiting patients, our staff and your doctors.
We ask all our patients to telephone the practice if they are experiencing fever, sudden onset of coughing and respiratory difficulties and NOT TO ATTEND THE PRACTICE WITHOUT PHONING AHEAD.
  • Patients should be aware that testing for the COVID-19 virus will not be conducted without symptoms.

  • Patients requiring testing for COVID-19 will currently need to attend one of the 5 clinics across Melbourne to be tested. High Risk patients will be triaged at these centres.
