COVID-19 Clinics and Testing Centres

Rapid testing (60 minutes) is only available in emergency situations. This type of test is not currently available within COVID-19 and Respiratory testing clinics.

Visit the Testing for COVID-19 page for information on who is eligible to get tested and how.

If you meet the criteria for testing for COVID-19, you do not need a referral to visit most dedicated COVID-19 clinics.

You do require a ‘specimen collection request form’ from your GP to access drive-through and home testing services.

By triaging, testing, and referring suspected or confirmed cases of COVID-19, these clinics will take pressure off our Emergency Departments and help to minimise the spread of infection.

Metropolitan COVID-19 clinics

You do not need a referral to attend the below COVID-19 clinics located at public metropolitan hospitals.

Drive-through testing

Patients need to get a ‘specimen collection request form’ from their GP to access the drive-through testing service.

Drive-through collection centres have been established so that tests can be taken with the patient still in the vehicle, minimising the risk of spreading the infection.

Drive-through testing will support GPs who may not be able to perform the test in their own clinic.

Home testing supports GPs who may not be able to perform the test in their own clinic.
