Closure of COVID Care in the Community Service for Hunter New England area

The COVID Care in the Community service has provided an excellent service for GPs and patients over the pandemic. As we move to COVID-19 infections being part of our business as usual, the service closed on 31st March 2023 and will no longer provide patient monitoring or clinical advice.

The HNE HealthPathways will continue to be updated as required to provide current, locally relevant advice. For assessment, management and referral advice for COVID-19 positive patients see:

For clinical advice, GPs can contact:

  • The National Coronavirus Helpline 1800‑020‑080 (select option 4 for healthcare professional advice)
  • the patient’s treating specialist as required for significant co-morbidities
  • a local respiratory physician
