  • COVID-19 (Coronavirus)

    It is important that we all support each other at the present time and work together to remain calm. At the same time me must also slow the spread of COVID-19 (Coronavirus) as best we can. This can be achieved through good hygiene and taking sensible precautions.

    Please, if you have any cold or flu like symptoms, stay at home and get yourself well. Don’t come into the clinic. Please advise the clinic of your inability to attend a scheduled appointment.

    • Find out more about COVID-19 from the Health Department
    • A public information hotline is provided by Nurse-on-Call 1800 675 398 – please call if you want more COVID-19 information.
    • Also, if you have returned from any of the at-risk countries listed on this Health Department page (currently China, South Korea, Italy and Iran) in the past fortnight, please don’t come into the clinic. 
    • And here is some information about hand washing and maintain good hygiene practices. 

    Telehealth Appointments

    If you do end up needing to self-isolate, it is possible to hold a distance session instead. Distance sessions can occur online (video - face to face) or via the phone. For some people located in rural, remote and very remote areas, it may be possible to claim a Medicare rebate. Also and most recently, the Australian Government has authorised psychologists to provide support to community members who fulfill certain Covid-19 criteria under Medicare funded telehealth. Please contact the clinic to discuss the various options available.
