Coronavirus Safety Measures

We want to reassure you that the priority for our practice remains the safety and well-being of people – our patients, our people and the community. In line with this commitment, our practices are continuing to implement a number of standard and COVID-19 specific measures to help minimise any risk of exposure.

These measures include:

  • Our team members staying home if they have been in contact with a confirmed or suspected case of COVID-19 or are feeling unwell;
  • Standard infection control procedures to reduce the spread of any infection;
  • The use of personal protective equipment (PPE) for all treatments such as standard level 2 surgical masks, protective eyewear, gloves and appropriate protective outerwear;
  • Strengthened cleaning procedures, including actively promoting the regular use of antibacterial hand sanitiser and surface wipes;
  • Stringent personal hygiene measures for our people;
  • Requesting patients reschedule their appointment if they have been in contact with someone confirmed or suspected to have COVID-19, have travelled internationally in the last 14 days, or are or have recently been unwell, including experiencing any flu-like symptoms;
  • Touch free temperature checks for our patients; and
  • Scheduling and managing patients to limit the time they will spend in a common area and unnecessary contact with others.
