The Weston Creek Respiratory Assessment Clinic (RAC) has expanded its services to provide clinical support for COVID-19 patients who do not require hospital admission.
Patients will be able to talk with a health care worker over the phone who will be able to help them get the health care they need.
Post hospital support and follow up for positive cases will also be available through this service.
The expanded service will reduce the number of patients presenting at our emergency departments or being admitted to our hospitals by providing accessible medical support early.
Infectious Diseases and General Medicine Specialists from Canberra Health Services will support our nurses and GPs to deliver the new services.
For non COVID-19 related care you can still visit a WiC at Belconnen, Tuggeranong or Gungahlin.
Walk-in Centres offer free health care for minor injuries and illnesses. They are in Belconnen, Gungahlin, Tuggeranong, and Weston Creek.
A fifth Walk-in Centre will open in Dickson in 2020.
Opening hours are from 7.30am to 10pm daily, including public holidays. No appointment is needed.
All Walk-in Centres are led by a team of highly skilled advanced practice nurses and nurse practitioners with extensive experience in treating people with minor injuries and illnesses. There are no doctors at our clinics.
If you have complex health conditions or children under 2 years, please visit your GP for advice.
In an emergency or life-threatening situation, please call 000.
If you would like to provide feedback about the Walk-in Centres, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
Employment opportunities become available at various times throughout the year. We look for Nurse Practitioners and Advanced Practice Nurses who have a high expertise and provide a high standard of care for the ACT community.
