The new Respiratory Clinic providing COVID-19 testing for the Central Coast has opened to the public today.
Operating from the grounds of the EV Church at 331 Terrigal Drive, Erina, the clinic will be led by local GP’s and supported by experienced nursing and administration staff with the capacity to test over 100 patients per day.
Our CEO, Michelle Bradbury, said she is proud to bring this service to the local community. “We know that testing for COVID-19 is important to help protect our community and I am pleased with the positive response we have already received from the local community about the clinic.”
The clinic is free to attend and will assess people with mild to moderate symptoms, including fever, cough, sore throat, and shortness of breath and others who may require a COVID-19 test. People with severe symptoms are encouraged to consult their usual GP or attend the local emergency department. It is expected that test results will be made available within 48-72 hours and people will be provided with their results by phone or text message.
The clinic is open from 10:30am to 5:30pm Monday to Sunday. Bookings are required and can be made through our website, www.ccpc.com.au, or by calling the Clinic directly on 0435 813 865.
