Novel Coronavirus Update

Coronavirus Update - 1 April 2020

From Monday 30th March, our doctors will shift to delivering consults predominantly via telephone. Our doctors can perform a large proportion of routine care via the phone. These measures are in place for your safety. We may delay some 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.
 
Book an appointment online for a telephone consult with a GP doctor. In most cases, telephone consults during the pandemic will be bulk-billed. 
 
At this time, our doctors will only examine patients face-to-face if required. In this case, the doctor will arrange for an appointment to be scheduled for you following your telephone assessment. For unwell patients, please ring the doorbell upon arrival at the clinic, or call us before coming. For well patients, you will be screened upon arrival. While this precaution might appear extreme, it further adds to your safety.
 
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 on 8232 7372 or book a consult with a doctor via telephone.
 
Call 000 if you need urgent medical assistance.
