At Ballan District Health & Care (BDHC), we continue to look after our most vulnerable community members. With the current Coronavirus COVID-19 crisis, we are forced to make hard decisions to ensure the safety of our community and staff, whilst still providing care for our community.
Allied Health appointments are available via telehealth or video call only. If you are interested in receiving support in this way, please call GP Clinic Reception on 5366 7999.
Note, phone/video consultation may not be appropriate for some conditions.
Hydrotherapy pool and gym
The State Government has allowed public swimming pools and indoor gyms to re-open, with strict social distancing and personal hygiene measures in effect.
As a result, we’re pleased to advise that our pool and gym have re-opened to the public under special conditions. Visit our Primary Care Centre page for more information.
The GP Clinic at 164 Inglis Street, Ballan is operating for appointments and medical services.
Only those scheduled for an appointment will be permitted to enter the Clinic, and then only after being screened for symptoms and risk of Coronavirus (COVID-19):
