To make the screening process easier patients and visitors are able to complete a screening questionnaire prior to arrival using the QR code located at each health service entrance. You can also complete the survey here. Hint: When choosing health facility start typing Warrn, Campe, Lis, or Mac to find our services.

After completing the survey please show your approval screen to the front reception. You will need to complete this survey every time you visit the health service.
