A new dedicated clinic for people who are COVID-19 positive will open at the Surge Centre, Garran Oval, on Monday 10 January to manage health assessments and treatment for people with COVID-19.
The clinic will provide health care for people who have tested positive for COVID-19 or have had a positive rapid antigen test (RAT) and who need treatment for other non-life threatening injuries or illnesses.
These may include cuts and abrasions, strains and sprains, bites and stings, infections, and wounds.
The clinic will also provide patients who are COVID-19 positive with in-person support and advice as they manage their symptoms during the illness.
It will run seven days a week, including public holidays, from 7.30am to 10pm. No appointment is needed for this free service.
The clinic will operate from the northern end of the COVID-19 Surge Centre, with a separate entrance to the testing clinic.
COVID-19 testing will continue to operate separately at the southern end of the facility.
The Inner North Walk-in Centre in Dickson will close at 10pm on Sunday 9 January until further notice to redeploy staff to the COVID-19 clinic at Garran.
