If you are experiencing respiratory symptoms, 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.

You can get free Rapid Antigen Tests (RAT) and N95 masks from the cohealth locations listed below.

Fees & eligibility

Anyone with COVID-19 symptoms can get a free RAT.

Visit the clinic reception during opening hours to pick up a rapid antigen test. You do not need an appointment.

There is no cost for getting a COVID-19 RAT.

For COVID-19 PCR and RVP testing, there is no cost if you are symptomatic and have a referral from a GP. You can get a referral by booking in to see a GP at a cohealth GP Respiratory Clinic.
