COVID-19 Information and Policies

Appointments

Masks

It is essential to wear a mask correctly before entering, and at all times while in the building. This is regardless of exemption as we are a high risk setting. If you do not wish to wear a mask please ask for a telehealth appointment when booking, or speak to one of our nurses.

Telehealth

With the ongoing high number of COVID-19 cases we are preferring Telehealth consults when possible.

To be eligible for Medicare rebates on telehealth fees you must have had a face to face appointment in the clinic in the last 12 months. Adelaide Health Care requires private billing for telehealth consultations in line with all consultation costs. This means that there may be a fee payable for your phone consultation. You will receive a phone call from our reception staff after your consultation to make the payment.

Necessary vaccination, examinations and procedures will continue as in person appointments. If you have an existing appointment and you would like to change to Telehealth please ring us on 84100774.

To prepare for your telephone appointment, view the “Telehealth – Getting the most out of your appointment” Factsheet

Face to face appointments in the clinic

    • Please arrive at the stated time for your appointment and not considerably earlier, so to reduce the contact time within the Clinic.
    • We ask that only one parent/caregiver attends with their dependent  for any appointments due to  social distancing requirements within the Practice.
    • We are reducing the number of people in the waiting room so you will be asked to wait outside or in your car if the weather permits.
    • If you have a fever, cough, sore throat, runny nose, fatigue, shortness of breath, headaches, change in smell or taste, diarrhoea, nausea or muscle pain have a covid test as soon as possible and self-isolate until you have the result. This still applies if you are vaccinated.
    • Please ring the practice to let us know before your appointment if you have had any of these symptoms, this still applies if you are vaccinated and/or had a Covid negative test.
    • If you have tested positive to Covid and you need an appointment on days 8 to 14 after finishing isolation, as per SA Health advice we ask you book a telehealth appointment as we are a tier 2 setting. Please call and speak to our nurses if you feel an in-clinic appointment is necessary.

COVID-19 VACCINATIONS

Pfizer booster vaccine now available 

Adelaide Health Care is pleased to announce that we are expanding our services and providing COVID-19 Pfizer Cominarty Vaccine as a Booster dose.

These appointments are currently available for existing patients only. Vaccination appointments will be on Fridays between 11am and 2pm, bookings are essential.

Please book by calling our Reception team on 8410 0774 or online via our HotDoc App.

Please ensure you have completed your consent form prior to your appointment. This can be done when you book your appointment online, or can be organised when you book at Reception or filling out this form and sending to us.

COVID-19 vaccination advice

We strongly recommend that everyone who is eligible for vaccination against Covid be vaccinated, this will reduce the risks for yourself, your family and the whole community.

It is very important to have your booster when eligible as immunity lessens when it is more than six months after your second dose.

Some groups of people are immunosuppressed and are  recommended to have a third dose from two months after their second vaccination. If you are on methotrexate or other immunosuppressive drugs, have a blood cancer, or are having chemotherapy for other cancers discuss a third dose with your Doctor.

There are now mass COVID-19 vaccination clinics provided by SA Health. To book at one of these locations, click here. A number of pharmacies are also offering Covid vaccinations.

For general advice about COVID-19 vaccinations including to check which phase of vaccination you are eligible for and lists of places to receive the vaccine, see here.

We will be reviewing all aspects regularly so please either call Reception or check our Website or Facebook page for updates and changes.

We are committed to providing your ongoing healthcare in these difficult times. If you need us, please contact us for a consult. We are here for you.
