Coronavirus Health Alert

As the threat level of COVID-19 is currently low in South Australia, we’re now offering face-to-face appointments. We are watching the situation in other States very closely.
We continue to observe social distancing >1.5m and limit the number of patients in our waiting room.


If you have travelled from Victoria, New South Wales or the ACT, you are required to have a COVID-19 test on arrival and again at day 12 of your quarantine. If you would like help arranging this, please schedule a telehealth consult with a GP.


If you have travelled from the Greater Brisbane or Ipswich areas of Queensland since 22nd August, please inform our staff before visiting so we may arrange for a safe review for yourself and our team.


If you have symptoms of the flu, a cold, or a loss of sense of smell or taste, then a COVID-19 test is necessary. If you require help to arrange this, please book a telephone consult with a GP first, and an appropriate safe review can be arranged.


For patients with other conditions who would prefer a telephone or video consult, these appointments continue to be available for eligible patients (please see below).


The Government has now restricted COVID-19 Medicare GP telehealth items to circumstances where a patient has an existing relationship with a general practice (i.e. the patient has visited a GP in the practice face-to-face in the last 12 months), other than for children aged under 12 months or patients who are homeless.


Please be assured that our clinic is COVID-19 safe, and we remain prepared to transition back to telephone triage of all consults should COVID-19 threat levels increase.
