STEPS TO PREVENT SPREAD OF COVID-19
Thank you to our patients attending the practice during the Covid-19 pandemic. Your understanding and cooperation with the everchanging policies and procedures we have in place to protect us all and ensure we comply with government guidelines is very much appreciated.
It is important not to neglect your cardiac health during this crisis and we remain committed to providing all our usual services.
If you have symptoms of fever, chills/sweats, cough, runny nose, sore throat, shortness of breath, muscle soreness, loss of sense of smell and taste- we advise you get tested and if needed contact your GP or local Coronavirus hotline on 1800 675 398.
PLEASE DO NOT ATTEND OUR PRACTICE if you have any of the symptoms above or have recently tested Covid-19 positive or awaiting Covid-19 test result or been in contact with someone who has. Please call our team on 9592 2177 to advise. We offer telehealth consulting so you can remain in direct contact with your cardiologist when you cannot attend.
Other measures we are taking include:
- Face masks to be worn by patients and clinical staff
- Checking Covid-19 vaccination status
- Increased cleaning regimes throughout the day
- Cashless payments only
- Asking you to attend alone (where appropriate) to reduce numbers in the practice
