APPOINTMENT CHANGES AND PHONE CONSULTATIONS
From March 30th the Federal Government announced a funding package to enable doctors to offer bulk-billed Telehealth consultations for patients with a Medicare card. If you do not fit have a Medicare vard but wish to have a phone consultation this can be available for a private fee. We require prepayment for this service, please phone reception for more information.
In the event your doctor is required to be isolated themselves due to being unwell then you will be offered a phone consultation. In the event of this occurring this service is able to be bulk billed with no out of pocket expense for all patient’s.
Many doctors will be trying to do as many consultations on the phone as possible in order to reduce the risk to the public and reduce the amount of people in the waiting area. In the event you do need to be seen in person or sent for tests, this can be arranged by booking an appointment through reception.
If you have mild upper respiratory tract symptoms such as a sore throat, runny nose you are likely to get better without prescription medication. At DMAHG we advise you stay home and use simple measures like drinking fluids, resting and paracetamol. If you are concerned and would like to see a doctor, please call first. If you fit testing criteria for COVID-19 we can advise this over the phone.
If you are feeling very sick and/or having breathing difficulties you should go to the hospital but again, we ask that you call ahead.
Keeping unwell people out of our waiting rooms and reducing the number of people in our waiting rooms overall by having phone consultations where possible will help the protect the people who really need to be there. It will also help protect our valued practice staff so we can continue to offer our patients the services they need. Please heed this advice. It is safer for you and your family, safer for your doctor and the practice staff and safer for the community as a whole.
Flu vaccines will be available towards the end of April/early May. We will provide a website update about this and advise how we will be approaching it closer to the time.
Please note, this is an ever evolving situation with the instructions from the health departments changing rapidly. Please continue to heed our advice and that of NSW Health and the Federal Government. Wash your hands, stay at home as much as possible, avoid shaking hands and kissing/hugging and hopefully this will be over soon.
