We are awaiting our first delivery of government funded Influenza Vaccinations. It is anticipated that our first influenza clinic will begin on the 6th of April. Given the Coronavirus pandemic, vaccinating large groups of people safely, quickly and observing social distancing measures is a challenge. We have been in discussions with The Blackwood Memorial Hall, and they have been very accommodating in allowing us to utilise their space for this purpose. We feel very confident this location will be extremely suitable. We strongly advise that our patients utilise this service, as it is vastly superior and safer than the alternatives available such as busy and confined pharmacies. Please check this page after the 31st of March for further details regarding bookings.
If you are severely unwell call 000 for an ambulance or go directly to hospital.
Due to the rapidly escalating situation regarding the Covid-19 pandemic, The Blackwood Clinic has been required to implement new procedures to reduce the risk of transmission. In order to better protect our patients and staff, we have now implemented a complete telehealth service. Please ring our helpful admin staff to arrange a booked phone consult. We will do our utmost best to manage your health related inquiry. Of course there are situations that may require face to face care or intervention, and if this is applicable to you, your doctor will discuss and make arrangements for that to happen at a later time. Don't be surprised if much of this interaction occurs in unusual settings, such as the car park, your car or outside of the clinic.
If you think you may have coronavirus, please call us. Our doctors can assess you over the phone, and determine if you require further testing to exclude Coronavirus
Where possible, the cost of this service will be covered by medicare (bulk billed) if any of the following criteria are met. Telehealth Eligibility. For those that do not qualify, a $50 private fee will be charged.
These are unprecedented times that we as a community are facing. We would like to thank everyone so far for their understanding in managing this risk together.
