Kyabram District Health Service is taking a proactive approach to protect both our staff and our community.
We are preparing for increased patient numbers and demand for services.
The first point of contact for people who suspect they have COVID-19 remains the DHHS hotline 1800 675 398.
If you are unwell and have flu-like symptoms and have travelled overseas recently KDHS would appreciate it if you would please ring ahead to the hospital on 5857 0200 before presenting.
We aim to keep our local community informed as this dynamic situation unfolds.
Please note: Our COVID-19 Testing clinic is a nurse ran clinic and is unable to provide Medical Certificates. We recommend anyone who has symptoms to make a Telehealth appointment with their GP to discuss further management.
The COVID-19 testing clinic will operate as a walk-in clinic over the weekend (5th & 6th June) from 2.00pm to 3.00pm. Enter via the gate next to the Renal Dialysis Unit.
