Coronavirus (COVID -19)

CURRENT COVID INFORMATION

All patients are required to wear a Face Mask in the clinic

COVID-19 VACCINATION UPDATE  – 23rd November 2021

Belair Family Health Centre would like to thank our patients for their understanding as we all adapt to the changes ahead. Your health and wellbeing is our priority and we have multiple measures in place in line with SA Health guidance to ensure your safety in our clinic as the SA borders open.

We are requesting all patients to book a phone or video consult rather than face to face. Your doctor will then decide if you need to be seen in person (eg for examination). Only patients that have been seen face to face in the last 12 months are eligible for medicare rebates for telehealth consults. If you do not meet this criteria, we can provide a privately charged consultation.

All phone and video consults incur normal fees which are to be paid by phone immediately after the consult.

If attending for an appointment, we ask that you stay in your car or outside and phone to let reception know you have arrived. We will contact you when the doctor is ready for your appointment. It is a government requirement that masks are worn while in the surgery- we require this now to be a surgical mask.

We ask that patients do not bring friends, family members, or carers to their appointment unless necessary.

Belair Family Health Centre is not currently seeing patients with respiratory symptoms such as cough, runny nose, sore throat, fever or loss of smell or taste. We ask you to complete a declaration on arrival to keep our patients and practice team safe. If you have symptoms, please arrange to have a swab and book a telehealth consult with your doctor. Once a negative swab has returned, your doctor will determine a plan for your individual circumstances.
