As all Australians face the challenges of the Covid 19 pandemic we have instituted changes in our practice.
We are maintaining social distancing, hand hygiene and minimising everyone’s risk. You will be asked to stay in the car to reduce time in the clinic. Many consultations can be done by telehealth or video link please discuss with the receptionist.
If you have mild viral symptoms there is little benefit to coming to a General Practice. There is no specific therapy for viral infections. If you are significantly unwell ( eg short of breath, high fever, dehydrated ) go to the hospital. If you think you need testing for Covid 19 ring 1800 999 880 (option 1) to confirm your eligibility for testing and then go to the testing clinic at South East Regional Hospital . If you are not sure please stay at home, call health direct 1800 022 222 or phone here for a telephone consultation.
For the short term we are bulk-billing ALL routine consultations to reduce the need for cash or card handling. This is not sustainable in the long term to maintain a high quality service, but is something we can do to support the community in such a challenging time.
