Amanda Proposch from the Gippsland Primary Health Network says they are working with local GP clinics to take the pressure off hospitals and health services.

"They will be dedicated sites that will work hand in hand with our hospitals and health services to help relieve the burden on the health system, and undertaking assessment and triaging and testing. We'll be in a position to announce where those clinics are very soon." Ms. Proposch said.

"We're working with our pharmacies to support a release...a mechanism to have prescriptions and medicines delivered to those who are most vulnerable at home and needing access to medications."
