If you are concerned that you may have Coronavirus COVID-19 infection, or your employer is requesting that you get tested for the virus or cleared to work, please do not make an appointment or come into the medical centre. Please call us and explain the situation to our receptionist who will arrange a telephone consultation with a doctor. COVID Clinics are also available at the 3 major Perth hospitals. This is to avoid the spread of infection to others. Please call us even if government agencies such as HealthDirect have advised you to see your GP.
We are also offering telephone consultations for non-COVID matters for patients who are either self-isolating or who feel unable to attend the clinic. There are obviously situations where we will need to see you but we will endeavour to do as much as we can by telephone.
Telephone consults will be bulkbilled if you meet the following criteria:
– Over 70 years age
– Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander over 50 years of age
– A parent of a child under 12 months
– Being treated for a chronic health condition or are immune compromised
– And have been seen in the practice within the last 12 months.
Telephone consults will be available for patients who have been seen in the practice within the last 12 months, who do not meet the above criteria, however we are unable to bulkbill these consults and a private fee of $80.00 will apply. This fee will not be claimable from Medicare.
