Your health and safety is our highest priority. We are closely monitoring the progression of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) and have implemented the following policy in line with advice issued by the government and World Health Organisation to reduce the spread of the virus and risk of exposure to you and your families. Please note, this may change at short notice to follow updated recommendations.
Do not come come in for an appointment if:
– You have travelled overseas in the past 14 days
– You have come into direct contact with a person with a confirmed or suspected case of COVID-19
– You have flu-like symptoms, including fever, runny nose, sore throat, cough, or difficulty breathing
Tele-consults are available for most appointments. In-person appointments will only be required for a small number of consultations. Usually, in-person appointments are preferred, however in the current situation, we will only have face-to-face consultations if necessary. We will confirm this when booking your consultation.
For GPs, we are still accepting referrals. Please send them, along with appropriate radiology and pathology results, via Medical Objects, fax or email and we will arrange an appointment for when it is suitable.
For any queries, please call us on 07 5667 9766 or email us at [email protected]
Stay safe and take care.
