NIHRACS Front Door Screening (updated 11/2/22)

Due to the current restrictions due to the risk of COVID-19 the main entry to NIHRACS is currently locked however the General Practice clinic is still open for business for all your health care needs and our emergency department is still operating. To decrease the risk of COVID-19 our processes have changed and Medicare is providing funding for telephone consultations where our Doctors can provide their services without you having to present to NIHRACS.  All booked face to face consultations will be required to have a COVID-19 Rapid Antigen Test prior to entry.

If have any of the following symptoms please telephone the GP Clinic for a phone consultation prior to presenting at the front door:

  • Fever
  • Cough
  • Shortness of breath
  • Chills
  • Body aches
  • Sore or scratchy throat
  • Headache
  • Runny nose
  • Muscle pain
  • Vomiting
  • Nausea
  • Diarrhoea
  • Loss of taste or smell

If the assessing Doctor decides you need further medical intervention they will inform you on what to do next.  To book appointments please phone our reception on 24134.  Please continue to help us to reduce the risks of coronavirus on our small community by taking advantage of our telehealth services. 

If you require medical assistance outside business hours please phone the hospital on 22091.

In cases of emergency please dial 000.
