Coronavirus Precautions

January 30, 2020

If you have recently visited China (or have been in contact with someone who has) and you are feeling unwell with fever, cough, breathing difficulties etc we need you to take precautions.  Please phone the practice on 5221 5044 and let reception know of your symptoms and concerns.  They will put you through to one of our practice nurses who will be able to answer your questions and tell you what to do next based on the most current advice from the health authorities.

If you are asked to come into the clinic to see a doctor we will ask you to call us when you arrive at the practice and one of our clinical staff will escort you to room where the doctor will see you.

A dedicated hotline has been set up for those people who suspect they may have Coronavirus 1800 675 398.
