GP Respiratory Clinics in SWS

Four GP-led, Commonwealth-funded respiratory clinics are open across our region. The new GP Respiratory Clinics are located in Campbelltown, Mittagong, Fairfield and Picton. 

The clinics are designed to assess patients with mild-to-moderate respiratory symptoms including fever, sore throat, cough, tiredness and shortness of breath; loss of sense of smell or taste; or unexplained fever. Regardless of whether COVID-19 testing is indicated, or a specimen is taken, the patient will receive clinical guidance about managing their respiratory symptoms through the clinic. Patients must have an appointment before attending the clinic.

To set up an appointment
Patients can phone the clinic directly for triage, be referred by their GP or undertake the healthdirect symptom checker and referral process. Patients can make an appointment over the phone or online via HotDoc and there will be no charge to the patient. Referring GPs will receive a copy of the pathology results.
