Covid – 19

As part of our response to COVID – 19, any person with any respiratory symptoms such as coughs, colds, and other respiratory symptoms are discouraged from entering the practice during this pandemic.

Instead, an open-air - ‘ al fresco’ clinic located at the front of the surgery will be available during office hours on weekdays.

We ask for your understanding in accepting that a decreased level of privacy during your consultation is necessary in order to continue to provide patient care in a safe and effective manner.

Please book in as you would a normal consult.

 

Children

Coronavirus anxiety

During a pandemic, with the uncertainty of how many especially older Australians will fare, along with fears about our personal and Australian financial security, it’s little wonder that some of us are perhaps a little anxious.

For many, the anxiety and resulting maladaptive coping behaviours will be much more of a health burden than the physical health burden from the disease.

For some good tips on how to look after your mental health during this pandemic, a good starting point is the Beyond Blue website.
