The COVID-19 testing clinic in Ballarat is operated by UFS Medical at the Lucas Community Hub and is open seven days a week, with appointments available weekdays until 8pm, and weekend appointments available. Testing is free for patients.
Location: Lucas Community Hub, Corners of Merz Street, Eleanor Drive and Coltman Plaza, Lucas 3350
The purpose of the respiratory clinic is to assess, test and diagnose mild-to-moderate respiratory conditions, including COVID-19, influenza and pneumonia. Please note that saliva testing is not offered, as the accuracy of these tests is not as reliable as the swab method. As all patients being tested at this clinic are showing symptoms, it is important that tests are as accurate as possible.
