COVID-19 testing

Get a RAT test for COVID-19 if you have cold or flu like symptoms.

If you need a PCR test or a Respiratory Viral Panel (RVP) test, book an appointment at one of our GP respiratory clinics in West Footscray and West Melbourne or get a GP referral for a private pathology provider.

RATs are the primary tool used to test for COVID-19.

From 31 December 2022, all of Victoria’s remaining state-run PCR testing sites closed.
