The Flinders Peak Medical Centre doctors are not currently taking new patients.
Due to the demands of the current pandemic and the population growth in our area, our GPs in the main surgery building are unfortunately not able to take on new patients.
The Purga Respiratory outside Clinic and our separate COVID-19 Vaccination clinic are however open to the public and treat patients from other practices. These services are by appointment only. Please ring 54646765 to make an appointment.
Darling Downs and West Moreton PHN is working in partnership with local organisations to host COVID-19 Pfizer Vaccination Hubs throughout the Darling Downs and West Moreton region including Ipswich (to 9 October 2021), Boonah (4 & 5 October 2021) and Kalbar (6 & 7 October 2021). To see who is eligible please go to www.ddwmphn.com.au/vaccination_hubs and follow the link to book a first or second COVID-19 vaccination.
The Flinders Peak Medical Centre is approved to administer the Vaxzevria (AstraZeneca brand) of COVID-19 vaccination and the Comirnaty (Pfizer brand) of COVID-19 vaccination.
We give COVID-19 vaccinations by appointment only. All people who have a booked vaccination appointment need to complete the questions found at this link [CLICK HERE] before being vaccinated. The questions can also be accessed using the QR Code we have posted in the surgery or we can provide a paper form to complete.
Vaccinations are given inside the main surgery building (not in the drive-around Respiratory Clinic).
As our vaccination clinic is funded by the Australian Federal Government we follow the Federal guidelines on which brand of vaccine can be given to each patient. This means that aspects of our clinic may be different to Queensland State Government vaccination clinics.
In line with the advice of the Australian Technical Advisory Group on Immunisation (ATAGI) we prioritise the Comirnaty (PFIZER brand) vaccine for people under 60 years of age across all phases and the Vaxveria (AstraZeneca brand) vaccine for people aged 60 years and over.
COVID-19 and other potentially infectious symptoms: We are treating any person with respiratory symptoms outside our surgery building, in the drive-around Respiratory Clinic we have established beside our surgery building. The outside Respiratory Clinic is a free service funded by the Australian Federal Government to treat anyone with respiratory illness including influenza (flu) and COVID-19.
The clinic is by appointment only. Call 07 5464 6765 to make an appointment.
Treats: any person with respiratory symptoms including but not limited to high temperatures / fever / unusual sweating / chills / coughing / unusual tiredness / upper respiratory tract infection / a runny nose / sore ear(s) / sore throat / skin rash / ache and pains / loss of sense of taste / loss of sense of smell / diarrhoea / vomiting. It is also for people who believe they may be unwell after coming into contact with someone who has a confirmed case of influenza or COVID-19.
If you have any of these symptoms or feel you may be unwell after coming into contact with someone who has a confirmed case of influenza or COVID-19, you cannot enter the surgery building. Phone the surgery and a receptionist can give you an appointment at the outside Respiratory Clinic.
For the convenience of our patients and the wider community, Queensland Medical Laboratories (QML) is operating a drive-through COVID-19 testing centre (GP referral needed) in the white demountable building outside the main surgery building. Usually open for COVID-19 testing Monday to Friday 8.30 am to 3.45 pm. Closed weekends and public holidays. A referral from a GP is required for COVID-19 testing at this site unless the area is declared a COVID-19 Hot Spot and the Government temporarily waivers the need for a referral. QML is independently owned and operated and its opening hours may be subject to change. Please make direct contact with QML if you are concerned about missing its opening hours.
Our receptionists answer the phone Monday to Friday 7.00 am to 5.00 pm depending on the availability of our doctors.
Sunday: ring to hear our recorded message.
From June 2021 we will be closed on Saturdays and public holidays.
