The Australian Government has recently announced new GP Telehealth services. You are now eligible to book a TELEHEALTH CONSULTATION with your GP. You can book a Telehealth appointment on our website or by phoning the practice.
Burwood Healthcare are working hard to ensure our patients have access to care during the current COVID-19 pandemic. You can speak to your doctor over the phone or video call during your TELEHEALTH CONSULTATION. This will be a bulk billed service for all patients with a current Medicare Card. For all other patients a small fee will apply at the time of booking your appointment.
Burwood Healthcare has teamed up with our local pharmacy, Quality Pharmacy. If you prefer, we can give your script to the Quality Pharmacy and your medication can be delivered to you at home. Please let your doctor know if this is your preference. Otherwise, we will fax your script to your preferred Pharmacy and you can arrange pick up from them.
Your doctor will inform you at the time of your TELEHEALTH CONSULTATION if a face-to-face visit is required. Burwood Healthcare have implemented practices to ensure all staff, doctors and patient are safe during their time at the practice.
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.
