We are screening every patient prior to attending their appointment. Our rooms are sanitised daily with extra
cleaning of high touch-point areas. Hand sanitizer and new pens are provided for each patient. We have removed all toys and magazines from our waiting room.
Social distancing is in effect within the waiting room and reception area, temperatures are checked on arrival
and wearing of face masks is mandatory.
We have implemented the following protocols:
- Requesting patients with pre-booked appointments to call ahead of the appointment if experiencing any of the
COVID-19 symptoms - fever (+ 37.5 deg. C), cough or shortness of breath, sore throat, aches and pains, loss of taste or smell (see health.gov.au ) or have been in contact with another person with known or suspected of having COVID-19 in the last 14 days.
- Requesting patients and any accompanying persons attending the appointment to wear a face mask, single-use
masks will be provided if you do not have one.
