Coronavirus Health Alert

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 COVID-19 triage process in place, and you may be requested to wait outside or in your vehicle.

We also observe social distancing >1.5m and limit the number of patients in our 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 have respiratory symptoms, please ask for a telephone appointment with a GP, and a safe review will be arranged.

The Government has restricted Medicare GP telehealth items to circumstances where a patient has COVID-19 and/or is a close contact and is required to quarantine or isolate under a state directive, or where there is an existing relationship with a general practice (i.e., the patient has visited a GP in the practice face-to-face in the last 12 months), children aged under 12 months, or patients who are homeless. Please be aware that a private fee may be incurred for telephone or video consults.
