Click here for the updated Australian Government COVID-19 Test and Isolate National Protocols, published 7 January 2022. This chart outlines when to get tested depending on whether you are a confirmed COVID-19 positive patient, close contact or other contact. The chart refers to PCR and RAT tests. A PCR test is a swab taken by a health worker and sent to a laboratory to be processed to get a result. A RAT is a ‘rapid antigen test’ that can be done yourself and shows a result in around 20 to 30 minutes.
For the convenience of our patients and the wider community, Queensland Medical Laboratories (QML) is operating a drive-through COVID-19 PCR testing centre in the white demountable building outside the main surgery building. Click here for opening times and more information. This is NOT appointment based. If you have questions that cannot be answered by the link above to QML’s Purga COVID-19 PCR testing, or from the chart about testing requirements from the Australian Government link above, please direct your enquiries to QML directly. QML is working alongside us but is independently owned and operated.

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.
