A MACEDON Ranges health service has vowed to deliver as many programs as possible during the pandemic.
Staff at Cobaw Community Health have begun holding appointments with clients over the phone or by video and the organisation will continue to work with children, young people, families, adults and those with a disability.
"We expect there to be an increase in demand for some services as we all embrace the significant changes to our lives," CEO Margaret McDonald said.
Cobaw's services include a range of child and adolescent health such as speech therapy, paediatrics and physiotherapy as well as a range of mental health supports including counselling, health promotion, pulmonary and cardiac rehab and dietary and nutritional advice.
The Centrelink service also remains available to local residents.
Cobaw will continue to provide the most up to date information on services via www.cobaw.org.au and its Facebook page or contact t 5421 1666 during office hours.
