At Top End Medical Centre, we believe that friendly and reliable care for the whole family should be available to everyone.
Quality, affordable bulk billed medical care
Our family-friendly medical centres understand the importance of providing the very best quality of medical care to you and your entire family. Many of our experienced doctors have families of their own and are passionate about helping people of all ages achieve their best health through affordable local healthcare.
If you have travelled to China, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Japan, Singapore, Thailand, Iran, South Korea, Iran, Italy or Norway recently or suspected of coming into contact with a COVID-19 infected person in Australia and you have flu-like symptoms, please contact our reception staff immediately, we only have limited places every day for our existing patients for COVID-19 testing. The ability to conduct testing in big numbers is extremely limited due to lack of infrastructure and lack of adequate infection control facility.
As a family practice and surgery, we don't have proper testing facilities such as Quarantined waiting rooms (an isolated area), Negative Pressure Rooms, Well ventilated consultation rooms (rooms with windows). Hence, we have developed a 7 step guide as below to educate our patients on the testing procedure.
COVID-19 (Coronavirus) testing is by appointment and for our regular patients only, conducted via DRIVE THROUGH testing.
There will be a doctor dedicated to conduct testing at each of our clinics.
Please give us a call to book an appointment and our reception staff will record your details.
The doctor will call you and obtain recent medical history and the travel movements. Once over the phone assessment is complete, you will be given an appointment for DRIVE THROUGH testing.
When you arrive, the doctor and a nurse wearing a pandemic kit will meet you at the drive-through. The Doctor will ask you to remain in the car and obtain samples from you for laboratory testing.
The doctor will issue a Medical Certificate and provide you with ‘at home’ isolation advice.
You will be notified immediately in case of a positive swab test result.
