As COIVID-19 case numbers come under control we will gradually transition back to our normal consultation format. From 28th September, patients without respiratory symptoms will be able to choose between face-to-face and telehealth consultations. Telehealth will continue to be available until the end of March 2021 – bulk billed for Concession patients and with a $20 gap for others. Please CLICK ON THE IMAGE ABOVE for a full update.
We are committed to serving our community through this pandemic. Telehealth remains our preferred first option for contact. We remain open for face-to-face consults for those issues that clearly require this. Please CLICK ON THE IMAGE ABOVE for a full update.
We are saddened by the passing of Emeritus Professor Neil Carson AO on 10 June 2020. Blackburn Clinic was founded by Professor Carson in 1952 and he maintained his connection with the clinic until his passing.
It was on the current site at 195 Whitehorse Road that Professor Carson first established the Blackburn Clinic general practice, using the lounge room of his family home as the waiting room. Click on the image above to read more.
Preventative health activities are now available. Telehealth continues to be our initial contact and assessment service but the clinic is open, safe and fully operational to attend to those issues that require a face to face consultation. Patients with fever or respiratory symptoms continue to be seen in our Carpark Respiratory Clinic. CLICK ON THE IMAGE ABOVE FOR MORE DETAILS.
