Darling Downs and West Moreton PHN is supporting general practices to help limit the spread of COVID-19 in our region.

This page contains information on the COVID-19 vaccine roll-out, GP respiratory clinics, fever and community assessment clinics, other locations for specimen collection and resources to help in the assessment and management of COVID-19.

Current local advice is that patients with suspected COVID-19 are referred to GP respiratory clinics, pathology collection centres, fever clinics, community assessment clinics or emergency departments that are equipped to appropriately respond.
