CORONAVIRUS (COVID 19) Information
If you have a fever or flu like symptoms such as fever, sore throat or cough, please inform our reception staff; they will arrange a telehealth (video or phone) appointment for you, with one of our doctors. The doctor may be able to help you with your problem without physically seeing you, including arranging any necessary tests, prescriptions or work certificates
If the doctor determines you need to be seen for physical examination, they will book you an appointment with a doctor who will be wearing full Personal Protective Equipment. If you have another health issue, but also have symptoms of an infection, the receptionists will give you a telehealth booking, where the doctor will be able to assess your problems.
We are continuing to book telehealth (video or phone) consultations over the phone or on the booking app. You will have a time booked when your GP will call you, please keep your phone charged, on and near you at this time. If your GP decides they need to see you in person, they will give you a time to come to the clinic to be seen.
We are now able to refer for tests for Coronavirus at private pathology providers, and can organise this on your behalf after a telehealth appointment.
