My Medical and Dental Centre
We are working hard to protect our patients and our community. We have taken steps to minimise the risk of contact with people that may be infected with Covid-19 by:
- Removing all toys and magazines from the waiting room.
- Placing signs on the seats to ensure our patients are practicing social distancing of 1.5m
- Introducing telephoning consults for those patients that have:
cough and flu like symptoms and have traveled overseas OR have been in close contact with a confirmed case of Covid-19
people aged over 70
Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people aged over 50
people with chronic health conditions or who are immunocompromised
parents with new babies and people who are pregnant.
People in isolation or quarantine for COVID-19 can see any eligible health provider through new telehealth
Patients in vulnerable groups can additionally see a health provider via telehealth for a non-COVID-19
matter if they have seen that provider face-to-face at least once in the previous 12 months. www.health.gov.au
Advise from QLD Health
If you have been overseas in the last 14 days and are feeling unwell, call your doctor immediately.
If you have been overseas and are feeling well, you need to self-quarantine for 14 days from the date you arrived in Australia.
You must also self-quarantine if you have been in close contact with someone who already has novel coronavirus (COVID-19).While you’re self-quarantining, if you start to feel unwell and develop any symptoms at all, but especially a fever or shortness of breath, a cough or a respiratory illness, you should seek immediate medical attention. Call ahead to your GP and tell them your travel history so they can prepare for your visit.
