17 October 2022

General practice respiratory clinics (GPRCs) now operate at many locations across Victoria through partnerships between primary health networks and the Victorian and Australian Governments. 

GPRCs are designed to take the pressure off hospitals by giving patients access to face-to-face assessment of respiratory symptoms (including COVID-19), testing and immediate treatment close to where they live. 

Bookings are readily available – there is no waiting in line.
