Coronavirus - COVID-19

With COVID-19 numbers improving in Victoria, we have made some changes to how we consult with our patients moving forward. We ask all staff, patients and visitors to please abide to these:

* Patients may now request or book an appointment online for a face to face consultation providing you do not have any cold/flu symptoms.  Cold/flu  symptoms must only be booked via a Telehealth phone appointment. Fees do apply for Telehealth.

* Upon arrival all patients, staff and visitors must have their temperature checked at the entrance and will be asked COVID questions.  This is a condition of entry. 

* Masks are mandatory for all patients and staff inside the clinic. Social distancing must be maintained in the waiting rooms. If you are exempt from wearing a mask, a copy of your exemption will be requested for entry.

* No staff or patients are permitted entry into the clinic with any cold/flu like symptoms, under any circumstance.

* All patients must use our QR check in code or manual templates to check into the clinic

We understand this time is difficult for everyone. We need to try and keep everyone safe as much as possible. Please stay home when unwell to help stop the spread 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 & our clinic's billing policy.

COVID testing is not performed within our clinic.

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

  1. Click the secure link in the SMS

  2. Register or login to your free BetterConsult account

  3. Complete the BetterConsult questionnaire

 

BetterConsult protects your medical information

With BetterConsult your medical information is private, confidential and totally secure, to meet and exceed Australian data privacy legislation.
