Concerned about Coronavirus symptoms?
If you are experiencing flu like symptoms such as fever, cough, sore throat or respiratory symptoms, regardless of recent travel, it is important to protect yourself and others and avoid public places.
To assist with the demand as well as keep our staff and patients safe, we are now offering pre-screening video and phone consults with our doctors.
• Patients eligible for COVID-19 telehealth can receive bulk billed phone or video consults*
• Patients not eligible for COVID-19 telehealth can receive phone or video consults privately billed
If you would still like to see a doctor in person, and have the above symptoms then please call us directly and ensure you have spoken to a member of staff prior to presenting for your appointment.
T & Cs: Bulk bill for phone or video consultations only apply to those who meet the COVID-19 telehealth eligibility. Otherwise, any telehealth appointment (video or phone consultations) will need to be privately billed with no Medicare rebate.
