COVID-19 Update - 23 November 2020
Due to the increased risk of COVID-19 in South Australia, our doctors are delivering consults predominantly via telephone or video telehealth. A large proportion of routine medical care can safely be performed over telehealth.
A telephone consult with a doctor can be booked online.
If your problem requires an examination, a safe face-to-face appointment will be scheduled.
If you have symptoms of cough, fever, sore throat, shortness of breath 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 clinics and testing centres. If you are uncertain, please book a telephone consult with your GP who will discuss and arrange this.
Call 000 if you need urgent medical assistance.
