Make sure you phone ahead if you are planning to come into any Gateway Health centre.

During the current Covid-19 situation it makes good sense for everyone to do that - but it's especially important if you have been to any area that that currently has restrictions in place, like Melbourne, in the past two weeks.

So we can protect you and protect others - phone ahead!
