Budja Budja Medical Clinic has moved to ESSENTIAL Telehealth Appointments during this COVID-19 pandemic. This means a phone consult with our GP, preferred either via FACETIME or SKYPE if you have these apps. If not they can be easily downloaded to your phone or computer.  The GP will determine if it is ESSENTIAL to consult face to face this can still be done at our clinic.  Appointments can still be made by phoning reception during opening hours, TUE-FRI 9.00-5.00 and every second MON.

 

A big thank you to the Halls Gap community for the support of the Grampians Texture, we were very fortunate to have been able to run the event. We will make a timely decision re the running of the Grampians Brushes program schedule for September, and will keep you posted.

Stay well Marion and the GrampianArts Team

The idea of a kids state/pump park was raised again on one of the Community fb pages. This continues to be a recurring idea. Previously a suitable location had been sourced but no one is willing to take on this project.
