Double Bay COVID-19 Drive Thru Clinic
January 2021 - UPDATE
Why is there a gap fee?
The Double Bay COVID-19 Respiratory Drive Thru service is run by General Practitioners which means if you have respiratory symptoms and need to see a GP you can book an appointment at the Drive Thru for all nearly all healthcare needs. It is a COVID safe alternative to attending the clinic as normal.
If you require respiratory review or additional medical care, such as respiratory examination or a script, this can be provided during your Drive Thru appointment. A GP consultation gap fees applies to all Double Bay Doctors Drive Thru appointments.
The Health Minister Brad Hazzard has recently called out pathology companies who have been charging laboratory costs for undertaking COVID-19 testing. Please note that we do not charge pathology fees for COVID-19 testing. Consistent with Government guidelines, we charge a GP consult fee.
