Coronavirus - COVID-19
Commencing Monday 20th July 2020
With COVID-19 remaining a concern in Victoria, we have made some changes to assist in stopping the spread of COVID-19. These changes are effective immediately and we ask all staff, patients and visitors to please abide to these:
* All GP appointments will now be Telehealth only. If you require a face to face appointment, your GP will advise you of this.
* When arriving to the clinic please contact reception from your car on 9216 5600 and advise of your arrival. Please wait in your car and your GP, nurse or consultant will call you when they are ready. If arriving by taxi or uber, you may enter the clinic upon having your temperature checked. Upon arrival all patients, staff and visitors must have their temperature checked at the entrance.
* Masks are mandatory for all patients and staff. Entry will not be granted into the clinic unless you have an exemption due to a medical condition or children under 12 years.
* No staff or patients are permitted entry into the clinic with any cold/flu like symptoms, under any circumstance.
* We request you come on your own to an appointment where you can. If bringing a child in, we request 1 parent only
* Remain behind the sneeze guards when speaking with reception
* No non-essential visitors to the clinic
* If you have an appointment with an Allied health specialist, we recommend changing this to Telehealth where possible.
We understand this time is difficult for everyone. We need to try and keep everyone safe as much as possible. Please stay home where you can and take care.
If you schedule a Telehealth appointment please ensure your contact details are up to date and your GP will call you at your appointment time. Telehealth consultations will be Bulk Billed if you meet Medicare criteria.
BetterConsult is here
We're excited to announce that the doctors at our practice now use BetterConsult to help you get the most out of your appointment.
BetterConsult is a "smart" pre-consultation questionnaire that asks the questions your doctor usually asks about the reason for your visit. It then prepares a summary for your doctor.
What does this mean for you?
By knowing this information at the start of your appointment, your doctor can spend more of your time focussed on addressing your healthcare needs.
Filling out BetterConsult prior to your appointment also helps you think through what you would like to address with your doctor.
How does it work?
You will receive an SMS from our practice the day before your appointment (or immediately if your appointment is within 24 hours of booking) with a link to your pre-consultation questionnaire.
When you receive the SMS, simply

Health reminders and results are sent securely to your phone. When you receive the SMS click the link, verify your identity and place your booking. Its as easy as that and ensures a quick & secure delivery of your health information.
July we will be focusing on COVID-19.
Whilst it remains a daily highlight & topic in the news, we are finding that members of the community do not always understand the importance of testing and isolation.
A common phrase we hear is " I have a cold, but it is not COVID-19". Unless you have a confirmed negative test result, you cannot possibly know this. COVID-19 presents with cold/flu like symptoms, these include:
* Shortness of breath/difficulty breathing
* Sore throat
If you have any of these symptoms, no matter how mild, you need to get tested and isolate whilst waiting for your results. There are many testing sites available now for easier access. Please do not attend the clinic with these symptoms as we are not an official testing site.
