EDcare Accident and Emergency Service

Coronavirus (COVID-19) UPDATE – as at 9am Fri 20 March

The COVID-19 CLINIC is now open at MOUNT BARKER HOSPITAL

Please DO NOT come to GPcare or Summit Health Centre.

The Clinic is located on the opposite side of the hospital in the OLD DAY CARE CENTRE accessible via GATE 3.

It is open 9am – 5pm, seven days a week but closed between 12 and 1 for lunch break. There is no phone number at this stage.

Directions are on the front door of the hospital, you cannot get there via the hospital main entrance so please do not enter the hospital. There are yellow footsteps from the main entrance of the Hospital to the COVID-19 Clinic.

This clinic is for people who meet the guidelines for COVID-19 symptoms. Currently this is: fever or cough AND have recently returned from overseas OR have had contact with a known COVID-19 case OR a health care worker with respiratory symptoms and a fever over 37.5.

It is a Walk-in Service. You do not need a referral from your GP, but nurses at the COVID-19 Clinic will only test people who meet the above criteria – this may well change as community transmission becomes more widespread.
