Queensland Respiratory and Fever clinics
Respiratory and Fever clinics are specialist clinics for people who may be infected with novel coronavirus (COVID-19). These clinics help to keep people who may be contagious away from other areas of hospitals and health centres. This helps to reduce the potential spread of the virus and keeps the emergency department available for emergencies.
Respiratory Clinic is commissioned by PHNs on behalf of Commonwealth, while Fever Clinics are set up by a Queensland Health “Hospital and Health Service” (HHS) in their respective regions. There are other differences between the two, but they all offer COVID-19 screening.
The Queensland State Health Emergency Coordination Centre (SHECC) Primary Care Clinical Lead has today (2 April 2020) provided the latest update on locations and opening hours for Respiratory and Fever Clinics across Queensland.
