    Coronavirus Updates

    Due to the coronavirus pandemic, all patients including children must have a COVID19 test if you have any flu like symptoms- fever, cough, headaches, sore throat, runny nose or shortness of breath. The doctor can organise the test for you without attending the practice. The doctor will advise you if you need face to face consultation once the test is negative.

    Please make an appointment for all consultations. No walk-ins are allowed. Telehealth is preferred. Referrals and scripts can be done on line without attending the surgery.

    All patients MUST wear a mask before entering the surgery. 

    We apologise for the inconvenience but the safety of our patients and staff is our priority.  

    Thank you for your co-operation and understanding.

    Managing Covid at home


    Most people who test positive for COVID-19 will likely only experience mild symptoms and recover without requiring special treatment or hospitalisation, especially if fully vaccinated. The majority will be able to self-manage their illness by referring to the RACGP’s COVID-19 patient guide Home-care guidelines for patients with COVID-19.


    Please do not attend the practice if you have tested positive in the last 14 days or if you are currently isolating or if you have any viral symptoms.

    Patients who want to talk to their usual GP about their results or any symptoms can make a telehealth appointment.


    If you need information or advice on COVID-19, call the Australian Government's National Coronavirus Helpline on 1800 020 080 — 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
