Thank you all for your patience as we adapt to the new restrictions. We are working very hard to still cover all your needs as much as possible in this time. Following is our schedule for the next week. We will continue to do these weekly as well as one for the month (starting Sept) to help avoid confusion.

Please note: our Nurse Practitioners & GP's  are also able to do most appointments via phone if you are unable to see them in person. We can also arrange some specialist appointments through Telehealth.

S.A. residents with Cross Border passes can also see Di in Murrayville. We are lucky enough to still have visiting clinicians helping with mental health, skin checks etc .

NAB Ouyen is changing its opening hours.

From Monday 17 August, changes to our opening hours mean you can do your in branch banking from 9.30am – 12.30pm, Monday to Friday. Outside of these hours, your local bankers will continue to serve customers online and over the phone.

While branches will always be important, our customers have been coming into the branch less, and using digital and phone banking more. That's why we're making our bankers more available through these channels.

Please note - effective as of 12th August.

As Barb (mail delivery) cannot get through the S.A. border due to COVID restrictions, mail will not be going to S.A. from Underbool. It will however still go, but via Ouyen, Bendigo way.

Mallee Track Health and Community Service - Underbool Bush Nursing centre

Please note, when you visit the centre we have a self-screening and temperature testing station, please ensure you follow the instructions. Your assistance is greatly appreciated.

Do you need help with mental health?

The impacts of the COVID19 outbreak in Victoria and current restrictions can leave us feeling stressed and overwhelmed. There are a number of supports available to help manage any mental health issues you might find you are struggling with. A lot of these can be accessed from the safety and comfort of your own home.

You don’t need to have a mental illness to access these supports, maybe you just need a little help with an issue that is challenging you or maybe you would just like to talk to someone.

There is a huge amount of information available if there is something specific you would like to find out please don’t hesitate to contact me

Mallee Track staff are currently supporting the community with a number of newsletters sent out on a regular basis, they provide updates, activities and a bit of a distraction. If you would like to receive one, please contact Pennie or myself.

Ph. 0402 045 984
