Coronavirus (COVID-19)

In addition to the important precautions to control COVID-19, the Government is concerned that people may have neglected their health during the pandemic and has impressed upon health practitioners the need to encourage their patients/clients to focus on the care of their physical and mental health.

Our Specialists can provide in-room care in a safe and controlled environment but if preferred or deemed more appropriate, telehealth consultations can be arranged.

It is very important that you don’t neglect your regular general health check-ups as well as skin, blood pressure, cervical screening (previously PAP smear), asthma, cholesterol and diabetes reviews.

Importantly at this challenging time, emotional and mental health issues also need careful attention.

Our infection control practices are exemplary and we pride ourselves on the cleanliness of our clinic. It is our top priority to protect our patients and staff, keeping our practice clean and well sanitised. Enhanced cleaning, sanitisation and hygiene measures are regularly taken throughout the clinic and between consultations.

We have rearranged our waiting room to help maintain social distancing and have limited the number of Specialists and patients in attendance at any one time. Please try to avoid arriving particularly early for your appointment and only bring along others when necessary.

We ask that all patients wear their mask for the entire time at our clinic and make use of the hand sanitiser or hand washing facilities that are available on entering and exiting the clinic.

Please be assured we are closely monitoring the ongoing situation surrounding COVID-19 and are strictly following the advice of the Department of Health and Human Services.

Health Direct have launched a COVID-19 Symptom Checker available for both desktop and smartphone users:
