Covid-19 Extra Protection Measures
To our valued patients,
Re: Coronavirus extra protection measures
As an accredited practice we already adhere to strict infection control guidelines, however we have decided to implement a few extra precautions to ensure we are doing everything we can for the safety of our community.
Please try to arrive for your appointments on time, neither late nor too early. We will be doing our utmost to keep all appointments on time. If delays are unavoidable, we will endeavour to contact you by text so keep a look out for any messages. Upon arrival please phone 8332 3222 and we will send you an sms when we are ready for you to come in. We will take your temperatures and ask that you come through the back door where we will get you and your child to wash your hands at the sink.
If you or anyone within your close contacts are sick or have a fever, we ask you call to reschedule your appointment.
If you or your close contacts have returned from any travel over the past few weeks please contact the rooms to reschedule your appointment.
Toys, magazines and colouring pencils have been removed from the waiting room.
We ask that only one parent attends the appointment and no other siblings.
We would appreciated if you could bring a digital form of payment as we will no longer be handling cash.
Like all medical practices, we will be reviewing the situation constantly. Please keep an eye on our facebook page for any updates.
We apologise for any inconvenience the changes may cause but trust all will understand why they are necessary.
Please don't hesitate to contact us if you have any concerns.
