The clinic is for:

No appointments or referrals required.

You will be advised if your child and your family needs to self-isolate while waiting for your test results.

  • If you are concerned that your child may have COVID-19 and requires medical treatment, take them to the Queensland Children’s Hospital Emergency Department (open 24 hours, seven days a week).
