Westgate Medical Centre DOES NOT have the facilities for testing for the Coronavirus. Our Doctors will be able to advise the latest testing locations and arrange a referral form for your testing needs.

For the safety of our staff and patients – and to manage the spread of Coronavirus – we ask that you adhere to the following:

If you have travelled, been in contact with anyone who has travelled, are concerned about possible exposure or are unwell with the typical symptoms of a cough, sneezing, sore throat, shortness of breath and fever – please DO NOT PRESENT to the Practice. Please isolate yourself and go out as little as possible, wearing an approved face mask if you do.

We advise you to call the Victorian Department of Health and Human Services Hotline on 1800 675 398 for advice. For all other questions, please call the Clinic directly on 03 8015 2700 – our Reception staff will be happy to assist.

Our waiting room is currently at a reduced capacity due to density restrictions – when you attend the clinic for your appointment, you will be asked to wait in your car after checking; the Doctor will call you when it is your appointment.

As per the Victorian Government requirements, patients will need to wear an appropriate mask when attending the clinic and whilst with the Doctor during your consultation.
