COVID-19 Information – Bluff Road Medical remains open
Please do not defer regular healthcare or cancer screening. We remain Open during COVID-19, offering patients Remote Health Consults by phone, video AND where necessary, private face to face services. These include skin checks, cancer screening, preventative checks, all vaccinations and routine procedures via our HotDoc Online booking system.
During the lockdown period, entry into the clinic is by appointment only. Please wait in your parked car until you are phoned and asked to enter the clinic (red arrow signs will direct you to enter from a side door). If you have been advised by your doctor to quickly pick up any pre-arranged documentation, please use the front main entrance (ramp access). Please call us for any concerns or queries about entering the clinic and stay safe.
Due to rising numbers of new COVID-19 cases in Melbourne, we kindly ask all patients attending our practice for in-person appointments to please wear a mask prior to arrival, preferably your own reusable one. This follows Victorian government advice to help keep patients and staff as safe as possible. For now, patients without a mask will be provided with one upon arrival.
Our COVID-19 response will greatly help reduce the risk of exposure for our staff and to patients. Flu vaccine sessions are available with safe, dedicated in-clinic vaccine administration. Please call to check vaccine availability or wait list. If you have any health concerns please book appointments online or on 9598 6244.
For further information about COVID-19 please see clinic news, and for information about self-swabbing here. If at risk, please review self isolation guidelines at the useful symptom checker site.
Please practice good personal hygiene and social distancing by avoiding mass gatherings, visiting the elderly or those at risk, or by wearing masks. Dedicated COVID-19 testing clinics exist near major hospitals including Monash Clayton and Alfred Hospital.
