IMPORTANT MESSAGE

CONSULTS ARE NOW BY TELEPHONE

Our doctors can perform a large proportion of routine care via the phone. These measures are in place for your safety. We may also delay routine preventative health care, including skin checks, routine pap smears, chronic disease care plans, and routine physical examinations until risks associated with the COVID-19 pandemic pass.

MAKE A TELEPHONE APPOINTMENT

To book an appointment online for a telephone consult with a doctor, please visit HERE.

In most cases, telephone consults during the pandemic will be bulk-billed.

FACE-TO-FACE APPOINTMENTS

At this time, our doctors will only examine patients face-to-face if required. In this case, the doctor will schedule an appointment during your telephone assessment.

On arrival at the clinic, you will be asked to call reception to inform them that you have arrived – please continue to wait outside. You will be called and taken directly into the consulting room. While this precaution might appear extreme, it further adds to your safety.

COVID-19 TESTING

Testing for COVID-19 is strictly limited to people who fit the criteria set by the Australian Government. If you have cold or flu symptoms, please stay home until you have been well for at least 48 hours.

If you need advice, please speak with our reception staff or visit our website to book a consult with a doctor via telephone.

Call 000 if you need urgent medical assistance.

The threat level of COVID-19 in South Australia is escalated. For the safety of our patients and staff, we encourage telephone appointments (where possible).

If a face-to-face appointment is required, it will be time-limited, and we request that all patients wear a face mask while in the clinic.

We have a COVID19 triage process and you may be requested to wait outside or in your vehicle.

We will require you to observe social distancing >1.5m and we will limit the number of patients in the waiting room.

If you have symptoms of the flu, a cold, or a loss of sense of smell or taste, then a COVID-19 test is necessary. Please refer to the SA Health website for a list of COVID-19 respiratory clinics and testing centres.

If you are unwell and do not have respiratory symptoms, please ask for a telephone appointment with a GP, where possible a safe review will be arranged.

Please be patient our clinic is determined to be COVID-19 safe.
