COVID-19 Practice Update
Thursday, 12 March, 2020

Dear Patients,

We have had a number of queries recently regarding COVID-19 (Coronavirus).

Being a medical centre, we have protocols in place to assist in the treatment of potential cases of transmittable diseases.

Do not attend this medical centre unannounced if you are showing symptoms of COVID-19, or have been or think you have been, in contact with a person who has travelled recently; especially internationally.  These international regions are no longer specific to China and include but are not limited to: Italy, Republic of Korea, Japan, France, Iran and Germany.  COVID-19 is also in Australia, with the most recent local case to Brisbane coming from Friday's nightclub in Brisbane City over the weekend.  Please phone our clinic on: 3399 4685 if you would like to speak to a receptionist and advise them of your symptoms.  We are currently conducting teleconsults (phone consultations) with a G.P. for a small fee and may consider bulk billing this in the near future.  If the doctor decides you need to be tested for COVID-19, we will send you to your local pathology testing laboratory however your doctor will discuss this during your phone consultation.

The main symptoms of COVID-19 remain:
1.  Current fever or past fever over 38 degrees celcius
2.  Cough
3.  Sore throat
4.  Shortness of breath

You may experience one or all of the above symptoms.

Please understand this is for precaution and not panic.  We are not only protecting ourselves but the patients in our waiting room and also the general public.
