For your safety and the safety of our staff, all our doctors are now offering phone consultations. If you already have a consultation booked and would prefer it to be a phone consultation, please contact the surgery on 9524 7262 and mention this to the staff.
All phone consultations will be charged at a reduced rate, but the rebate from Medicare will remain the same.
We will endeavour to meet all your usual needs through these telephone consultations. If the doctor decides after the phone consultation that you need to be seen in person, this will then be arranged.
Patients can still be seen face to face for their usual INR, osteoporosis injections or childhood immunisations but staff will need to confirm that you have no other symptoms.
If you need to come into the surgery please be aware of the compulsory social distancing measures. It is now our policy to request you remain in your car and let us know by phone that you have arrived. Staff will then contact you when the doctor is ready to see you. Wherever possible could you please minimise the number of people accompanying you to the surgery.
Before entering the surgery, please ensure that you sanitise your hands. In addition, we are now requesting that you wear a mask if you have one. Both of these are in an effort to ensure the safety of both patients and staff.
Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any health concerns as our doctors and nurses are still available. Our aim is to offer you the best care we can.
