COVID19 UPDATE

LEVEL 2 UPDATE 14 AUGUST 2020

Please note while we are in level 2 we request that you wait in your car for your appointment.

When making an appointment, you will be requested to wait in your car and ring reception on arrival. The doctor or nurse will collect you from your car and escort you into the building.  Please do not enter the medical centre without an appointment. Making an appointment is our opportunity to screen you and ensure the safety of our staff and other patients. We ask that you come to your appointment wearing a mask, if you don't have one, a mask will be supplied by the Medial Centre at a cost of $2.00.

How to wear a face mask

At Level 1 please phone as usual to make an appointment with your doctor. We are unable to see unannounced patients except in medical emergencies, please ring ahead.

All patients with respiratory symptoms (cough, fever, runny/blocked nose and loss of smell) please phone to make an appointment. On arrival to the medical centre for your appointment please stay in your car and call us to say you have arrived, and we will come and get you from your car. You will be asked to wear a mask.

Patients with no respiratory symptoms please phone to make an appointment as usual. You can decide if you would prefer that appointment to be a face to face or a phone/video consult.

 

All consults (face to face/telephone/video) attract the normal fee.

The MOH has asked us to continue the following activities and encourage you to not delay in contacting us:

  • COVID-19 Testing – no charge to patient
  • Cervical smear

FLU VACCINES

 

Flu vaccines will be available, please phone for an appointment.

For more information of eligibility please go to the 'our services' page and look under the 'flu vaccines' drop-down.

WHY

We must protect our vulnerable patients. Information received from Italy tells us that doctor waiting rooms contribute significantly to the spread of COVID-19. We need to reduce the number of sick and vulnerable people gathering in our practice.
