Bushfire smoke is continuing to affect air quality in Tasmania, particularly in the South.

People with asthma or chronic health conditions are at more risk of health harm, so it’s important they follow their asthma or health plan and try to reduce the smoke they breathe.

Others at higher risk of health harms from breathing smoky air are those with heart or lung disease, diabetes, a previous stroke, older people, babies, young children, and pregnant women.

On smoky days everyone should try to:
• Stay indoors, close your doors and windows
• Check that your air conditioning is not bringing smoky outdoor air into your house
• Avoid exercise outdoors
• Go somewhere less smoky like a friend’s place, a library, or shopping centre

Importantly, anyone who becomes unwell should seek medical help.

Bushfire smoke affecting Tasmania

Heavy smoke from Victorian bushfires is causing very poor air quality in Tasmania.

The air quality is worst in the northern and central regions of the state but is also affected in the south.

Very poor air quality poses a health risk, particularly to vulnerable people.

Those most at risk are people aged over 65 years, babies and young children, pregnant women, and those with heart or lung conditions, including asthma.

Even healthy people can experience short-term health effects in very poor air quality conditions.

A weather change forecast for the late morning and afternoon may shift the smoke from Victorian fires that is currently affecting Tasmania.

However, with bushfires burning around Tasmania, it will remain important to protect yourself from smoke.

The safest thing to do when it is very smoky is to stay indoors, and to avoid outdoor activities.

It important that people with asthma or other chronic conditions follow their health plan and try to reduce the smoke they breathe.

On smoky days everyone should try to:

• Stay indoors, close your doors and windows
• Set any air conditioning to recirculate the air
• Avoid exercise outdoors
• Go somewhere less smoky like a friend’s place, a library, or shopping centre

Importantly, anyone who becomes unwell should seek medical help.

Amiens Clinic

Our clinic is now extremely busy, leading to days where our doctors are fully booked, however our staff make allowances to ensure patient's with urgent medical matters and emergencies are still attended to.

On these days we can not adfit patients with non urgent issues (eg: check ups, travel vaccinations and medical assessments). These patient's will be offered the next available appointment with their doctor.
A situation that is not medically severe or life threatening is not an urgent matter.

Our staff are trained to triage patients and these adfit appointments are allocated at the clinic's discretion not the patient's.

If a patient phones the clinic with a medical emergency (eg: chest pain, severe breathing problems), our staff will offer to contact an ambulance and triage the patient to the Royal Hobart Hospital, as is the proper protocol.

If we can not offer you an appointment on the day, you may attend The After Hours Doctor at 252 Main Road Derwent Park after 6pm any weekday or after 12pm on weekends.

This is a policy of our clinic and we endeavor to accommodate all of our patients.

Any patient who refuses to adhere to the clinic's policies or shows disrespect to our staff will be asked to transfer their care to another clinic. ... See MoreSee Less

Every year, too many Tasmanians suffer unnecessary and often severe burns during the colder months – especially children between 13 and 24 months old.

Burns injuries can require scar management follow up for many years and further surgical scar revision.

Prevention is always better than cure, and by educating yourself and your loved ones you can help prevent burns.
