GOVERNMENT FUNDED FLU VACCINES ARE NOT YET AVAILABLE!

These will arrive mid to late April.

Pharmacies and some medical practices have purchased private stock (which they charge a fee for), however these vaccines are not as effective as some of those available through the government funded programs for FREE.

🔹If you are eligible for a government flu vaccination be patient and wait for the government stock to arrive.

This stock is controlled and supplies by the department of health and is out of our control.

We are currently discussing and planning the safest and most efficient way of providing patients with these vaccines.

🔹If you are not eligible for a government funded vaccination you may contact your doctor for a private script or make an appointment with a pharmacy for your flu shot.

We understand that patients are anxious. We are doing the best we can under the current circumstances and appreciate your understanding and support. ... See MoreSee Less

New restrictions are now in place in Tasmania to help slow the spread of coronavirus in our community.

Tasmanians should stay at home, unless they are:
• shopping for supplies or services
• getting exercise outdoors
• attending medical, or health care, appointments or for medical treatment
• providing social support, or care, to another person (including compassionate needs, or to facilitate shared custody, guardianship or care arrangements for another person)
• attending school or study, if unable to be performed at home
• attending work, or volunteering, if unable to be performed at home
• seeking veterinary services for an animal
• performing essential maintenance, or security inspections, of another premises owned, or occupied, by the person
• attending another location if you have a reasonable excuse, in the opinion of the Director of Public Health or his or her delegate, to attend the location.

New rules apply to indoor and outdoor gatherings, with a rule of two persons to be applied, except for gatherings of household members, those in shared custody or guardianship arrangements.

Together we can do this!

• ISOLATE the virus by offering Tasmanians medi-hotel isolation while they’re infectious with COVID-19;

• CONTAIN the virus with rigorous infection control hygiene by offering medi-hotel accommodation to prevent household viral contamination while patients are infectious;

• CRUSH the epidemic curve at the earliest stage to prevent exponential viral spread;

• SAVE lives by preventing health system overload and save the economy by preventing the need for protracted and extreme whole of population lockdowns.

• They are a GP or other health professional seeking information or advice about a suspected case of coronavirus.
• They are a health care worker with symptoms, seeking information for themselves.
People should NOT call the Public Health Hotline for general inquiries about coronavirus. For information about coronavirus, see the FAQs at bit.ly/2wW1JR8

In the ever evolving situation regarding COVID-19 our practice has decided to take the following measures to ensure the health and safety of our Doctors, staff members and patients.

Any person who has travelled from overseas within the last 14 days is not to enter the clinic unless it is an emergency. They are to return to their homes to complete government mandated self-isolation for 14 days post arrival in Australia.
If you fit into this category, please contact the clinic for alternative consultation arrangements to be made.

There will be a red line at the desk and around designated isolation areas. Patients are asked not to cross these lines unless requested by clinic staff.

Our clinic will not be accepting new patients for the time being.

Patients with severe cold/flu symptoms will be given a mask to and asked to wait in their car until their appointment. Once their appointment time arrives they will be contacted by practice staff and seen by their doctor under our isolation protocols.
If patients do not have a car to return to they will be asked to wait in the designated isolation area.

We will be requesting that patients only attend appointments with one support person – any additional people will be asked to wait in the car or outside the clinic.

In the coming days we will begin to offer telehealth appointments to patients who are in quarantine or are at highest risk of severe outcomes if they contract COVID-19.
The patients eligible for these consultations are dictated by the government and this can not be offered to everyone.

These steps are being put in place to protect everyone, in particular the vulnerable in our community. ... See MoreSee Less
