Up-to-date resources and information on testing from the WA Department of Health:

COVID-19 testing criteria tool for GPs

The WA Department of Health testing criteria tool is available for GPs and provides the most up to date advice on who can/should be tested and where.

This tool is based on the latest clinical advice provided by the Department of Health.

Patient details are optional, but submitting the form creates a PDF to give patients and/or add to their medical records to show their COVID-19 risk status at a point in time.

Respiratory clinics

The Department of Health is funding up to 100 GP respiratory clinics to help protect Australians. Patients that think they have symptoms of COVID-19 can contact a clinic to be assessed.
