Re:  Covid-19 Coronavirus

 

Our doctors are triaging patients daily and offering Telehealth Consults via Video or Phone where possible.   However, the nature of our business often requires an examination in order to provide the level of care deemed necessary.

 

We will contact you if a Telehealth consult is available to you for the particular problem you have been referred for.

 

In order to safe-guard us all, our practice has put in place the following precautions to minimise the risk of infection for face to face consults:

 

  • Masks are to be worn at all times

  • Maintain social distancing in accordance with the latest official health advice by:

 

    • Requesting patients not attend if unwell

    • Stand behind the line to create distance from reception

    • Requesting you stay in your car and call before arriving in our waiting room to reducing the number of patients in the waiting room

    • Unless essential, please do not bring any support person

 

  • Screening at the door to minimise risk to patients, staff and doctors

  • Please don’t come early for your appointment

  • We encourage you to please use the hand sanitiser on entry & exit 

  • Please refrain from touching your mask

  • EFTPOS machine – patient to clean hands after use

  • Pens – Sanitised using Clinidet

  • Regular disinfection of cleared desk & benches 

  • Removal of toys and books to reduce surface infection
