Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) Information and Response
As a medical practice we are continuing to operate and provide care for our patients but we have made a significant amount of changes within our practices in response to the COVID-19 outbreak.
If you have recently returned from Overseas and/or are experiencing any cold or flu like symptoms, we would ask that you isolate yourself by way of a home quarantine. Even though you may not have any symptoms, you may be a carrier and may be contagious for up to 14 days.
If at any time you develop a fever, a cough, sore throat or shortness of breath within 14 days of travel or have had contact with a person with confirmed coronavirus, you should immediately isolate yourself from other people. Contact your GP or your emergency department or call the Health Direct helpline on 1800 022 222 and seek medical attention as soon as possible.
If you have an appointment with us, and are experiencing any symptoms or believe you may have been in close contact with the virus, please contact us and we will provide further advice.
