A GP-led Respiratory Clinic has opened in Castle Hill for Berowra electorate residents to access if they need testing for Covid-19. The clinic is already taking bookings for tests and can be accessed by anyone living in the Berowra electorate.

“The opening of the clinic is well timed. The NSW Chief Medical Officer announced on the 18th May that the Hills Local Government area is now a particular focus for testing,” said Julian Leeser MP.

“This means that if you have any symptoms at all and live in the Hills area, you should book an appointment immediately and get tested.”

Patients will be able to receive an assessment, testing, and diagnosis when presenting moderate respiratory symptoms such as a fever, sore throat, coughing, tiredness or shortness of breath.

Appointments are required for assessment and treatment at the clinic, with online bookings as the preferred method of securing an appointment. Patients do not require a referral, or to provide payment as these services are free of charge. Appointments can be made by visiting castlehillmedicalcentre.com.au or calling 9634 5000.

Built from scratch and located within the Castle Mall shopping centre, this newly established clinic is one of 100 being opened across the country as part of the Federal Government’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The clinic will offer testing for COVID-19, and results will be provided to patients through phone, SMS, or other forms of communication. Patients will then be referred to their GP for ongoing treatment.

Castle Hill Respiratory Clinic is located at Level 1, Castle Mall, 4-16 Terminus Street, Castle Hill and is open between the hours of 8.00am to 5.00pm, Monday to Friday.
