Appointment Information

Your care and everyone’s safety are our priorities.

Due to high levels of Covid in the community, we kindly request that you DO NOT enter the clinic if you have a sore throat, running nose, fever, cough, diarrhea or even mild flu like symptoms. Instead book a telephone or video appointment through the booking link on our website, the Automed AMS CONNECT smartphone app, or ring reception on 9339 7799. You are encouraged to get a Covid PCR test or if this is not practical, do a RAT test at home prior to your appointment. Please isolate at home until your symptoms resolve or as advised by the doctor during your consult. If a face-to-face consult is deemed necessary by your doctor, it will be done in the surgery carpark using personal protective equipment, for the safety of our staff and other patients.

For all other patients, clinic consults are still available where there is a clinical need to be seen face to face, so long as you have not been diagnosed with Covid, have no Covid type symptoms and are not a close contact. To minimise the number of people in the clinic at any one time, you may be asked to wait in your car or outside the clinic before being contacted on your mobile phone to enter. Please follow instructions and wear a surgical mask.

Thank you for your support in ensuring that we can continue to deliver good medical care to all our patients.’
