COVID-19 Level 2 – 8 September 2021

As before, we are open for business, but it is critical, when phoning for an appointment, that patients inform the receptionist if they have any respiratory symptoms – new or worsening cough, sore throat, shortness of breath, sneezing and runny nose, loss of sense of smell or altered sense of taste, or a fever. It is also essential that you advise if you have any other risk factors including travel from a Level 4 area, contact with someone who has travelled from a Level 4 area, work at a border facility etc.

While it is still preferable to provide as many consultations as possible via the phone or video, if you do need a face to face consultation then we respectfully ask that you come alone as we have a limited space for people in the waiting room, to ensure a 2m distance from others.

All people aged 12 and over entering our facility must wear a face covering and must either use the Covid app to record the visit or sign in. Please also use the hand sanitiser dispenser in the foyer, on entry and departure.

Covid vaccination clinics will continue to be delivered as a “drive through” arrangement. These are done by booked appointments only – please phone our receptionist on 03 3144 506.

All of the above measures are to keep patients, staff and the community as safe as possible. Thank you for your understanding and co-operation.
