the coronavirus pandemic has changed how we can see patients

As we continue to learn how COVID-19 can affect us - our lives and livelihoods, we become better able to cope. That doesn't mean it's getting any easier; it's not. In fact, we've discovered this particular coronavirus is even more dangerous than we first thought. And it also looks like being with us for some time to come, at least until a vaccine is found. Even so, we feel we've learned enough to start seeing patients face to face again with a minumum of risk. But we ask that you follow some guidelines. Of course, you can still use telehealth for a consultation over the phone.

COVID-19 Testing

what you should do - Whether you want to talk to your doctor or nurse by phone or in person, simply make an appointment as you would normally by ringing us or using the HotDoc app. However, if you have cold or flu-like symptoms, please self-isolate and phone us so we can arrange to have you tested ASAP. Alternatively, you can go to the Coronavirus Clinic at Northern Beaches Hospital Emergency, phone Healthdirect on 1800 022 222 or use the NSW Government's Find nearest testing clinics search facility. If you have visited a known COVID-19 "hot spot," you should call us prior to booking an appointment. When you get here, you have to use the hand sanitiser outside and wear a face mask before entering. Children under 12 can skip the mask.

COVID-19 Symptoms

if you have symptoms of a respiratory infection - For most people coronavirus comes on much like a common cold with symptoms generally appearing three to four days after exposure. But unlike colds, the most distinguishing symptom of COVID-19 is a fever. Next are generally a dry cough, aches and pains then nausea and vomiting. Other symptoms can include shortness of breath, a sore throat, fatigue, headaches, a runny or stuffy nose, as well as an altered sense of taste and a loss of smell. If this sounds like you, you should be tested as described above. Meanwhile, self-isolate at home and don't allow any visitors. As you may have heard, in many cases infected people experience no noticeable symptoms, especially very young children. So if you have any doubts at all, get tested. And the sooner the better.

Online Repeat Scripts

online repeat prescriptions - Because the phones never stop ringing these days, we are providing a new service for those of you who need to replace a lost script or organise a repeat and have better things to do than wait to get though. Instead of phoning us with all the details, you can now order a repeat script online for a cost of $25.00. Subject to approval by your doctor, the script will be sent to your pharmacy.

Department of Health Resources

Department of Health COVID-19 - The Australian Government website provides a wealth of wide-ranging, up-to-date information about COVID-19. Accessing it is as easy as clicking Department of Health/Coronovirus. In particular, the site provides a collection of resources for the general public, health professionals and industry about coronavirus (COVID-19).
