ALERTS:Covid-19

 

Unfortunately due to COVID triaging systems in place, patients are unable to book online appointments at this time.  We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause and hope to reinstate this service when it is safe to do so.

 

When you are booking your appointment you will be required to answer the following questions:

  • Do you have any cough, cold, sore throat, runny nose, or fever?

  • Are you or anyone you have been in contact with awaiting a covid-19 test result or tested positive to covid-19?

 

Once triaged, you may proceed to book a face to face appointment following the guidelines below:

  • Sanitise your hands upon entry

  • Surgical masks (not cloth) are MANDATORY for all patients, visitors and staff – and must be worn correctly by anyone entering the premises at all times.

 

Patients who have any of the following symptoms may be asked to stay in their car on arrival and will be triaged by their GP by phone prior to coming into the Practice. 

  •  Fever (a temp of 37.5 degrees celcius or higher) or chills

  • Cough

  • Loss of taste of smell

  • Sore throat

  • Tiredness (fatigue)

  • Runny or blocked nose

  • Shortness of breath (difficulty breathing)

  • Nausea, vomiting or diarrhoea

  • Headache

  • Muscle or joint pain

  • Loss of appetite

 

In some circumstances a telehealth consultation may be offered.

 

If you do not follow the above guidelines you may be putting our Doctors, Nurses, Admin Staff and other patients at risk. This may result in our practice being put under unnecessary amounts of pressure and alter the level of service we are able to provide.

 

We have a zero tolerance policy for abuse towards any of our staff and we expect them to be treated with respect at all times. We aim to provide you the best possible healthcare during a challenging time and we appreciate your honesty and patience during this process.
