Latest News Re Covid-19 Arrangements
Under new guidelines with borders opening, and with the goal of keeping our vulnerable patients and all our staff COVID-free and to minimise the risk of staff needing to quarantine or the clinic close, the following steps will be in place from Tuesday 23.11.21.
Patients are asked to wait in their car and will be called by the doctor to start the consultation.
Any patient with symptoms of cough, fever, sore throat, nasal congestion, loss of smell/taste or earache will require a phone consult in the first instance.
Our vaccination clinics will proceed as planned, but you might be asked to wait in the car before hand.
Staff may be wearing N95 masks and eye protection for consultations.
It is mandatory for all patients in the clinic to wear a mask covering their mouth and nose at all times.
We will be aiming to keep the face to face component of all consultations to less than 15 minutes.
We anticipate our phones will be very busy, so please be patient and call again if need be. If urgent please call 000.
We may not have the capacity to undertake routine or follow-up COVID swabs for incoming travelers and these will be directed to access this in Port Pirie or Clare.
When you arrive for your appointment, please phone the clinic on 86432500 but if you are having trouble getting through, rest assured we will call you or come and find you in the car park.
Emergencies as always will be given priority and will always bee seen through the Emergency Department at either Crystal Brook or Laura hospitals.
