COVID 19

As all Australians face the challenges of the Covid 19 pandemic we have instituted changes in our practice.

It is important to continue to consult with a GP for any new medical problems and monitor your regular conditions. Everyone should also consider influenza and other preventive vaccines.

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 what to do please stay at home, call health direct 1800 022 222 or phone here for a telephone consultation.
