Balgo Health Centre

Clinic is still open.

Please call ahead. If you can’t call that is ok, still come to clinic.

Clinic number is: (08) 9168 8953

If you have a cough, fever, cold sick symptoms or breathing problems you need to tell us and you will be given a mask to put on before you come into the clinic.

We will try to arrange any specialist appointments to be done by a video-link rather than you travel to town. Call us to talk about this. If you have a health problem that isn’t urgent, we might arrange a home visit for you by the nurse or health worker, or a doctor’s appointment on the telephone while you are at home, or on the video-link in the clinic.

If you are very sick, we will look after you inside the clinic.
