How We Stay Safe During COVID

We are a COVID safe practice, which means we do everything possible to prevent the spread of COVID in our community.

Whilst COVID restrictions have eased in Victoria, we require patients to help us provide a safe environment and prevent the spread of COVID.

Patients must not enter the building with symptoms, with a COVID positive test within the last 7 days, when required to isolate, while awaiting the results of a COVID test, or when required not to enter in accordance with any other government provision.

It is our staff's responsibility to ask screening questions for your own safety, before you enter the clinic.  Whilst we understand the frustrations of life during a pandemic, we do not tolerate aggressive behaviour. Thank you for your understanding, patience and cooperation.
