With the increasing number of COVID-19 cases we are preferring Telehealth consults when possible.
You are eligible for telehealth only if you have been seen face to face at the Practice in the previous 12 months.
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
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.
The Doctors and Nurses you see at the practice will be wearing N95 masks and face shields or goggles.
You will need to use the Covid-Safe Check-in QR code before you enter the building for any reason. A paper record will be available for you to provide your details if you cannot use your phone.

We are currently not administrating the COVID-19 vaccinations at Adelaide Health Care, this may change in 2022 so keep checking the website and Facebook page.
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 at the Wayville Show Grounds, Women’s and Children’s Hospital, Noarlunga Centre and Elizabeth. To book at one of these locations, click here.
