Coronavirus (COVID-19) 

We understand in these uncertain and unprecedented times, it is extremely stressful, and you may be feeling anxious or scared. Please know, we are here with you.

As a women’s health clinic, we are passionate and committed to continuing to provide our services, as we have done so for nearly 48 years. At this stage, as per the Federal and State Government’s regulations, the clinic will continue to operate as normal. However, as the situation constantly evolves, we will be monitoring and updating the way we deliver our services in line with any government changes.

To ensure we protect the safety and health of our patients and staff, we have implemented some changes to protect everyone in our clinic.

When you make your appointment, please let us know if you have travelled overseas in the last 14 days OR been in contact in the last 14 days before illness onset with a confirmed case of COVID-19. We also need to know if you have experienced any flu-like symptoms, including a fever, sore throat, a cough or shortness of breath. If you develop these symptoms, after you make your appointment, please call us to discuss your options prior to attending the clinic.

To minimise the number of people in the clinic, we kindly request you don’t bring a support person inside with you when you attend your appointment. We ask you to be dropped off at the clinic by your support person and then have them return to collect you after your appointment, meeting you outside the clinic. If you feel you need to bring your support person into the clinic, please discuss this when you make your appointment. We really appreciate your cooperation during this very difficult time.

When you arrive at the clinic, we ask that you implement safe social distancing, maintaining at least 1.5m distance between you and any other person in the clinic, as well as practise strict hand hygiene, ensuring you use our hand sanitiser that will be provided upon your arrival. These measures have been implemented to ensure we can maintain the safety and health of our patients and our staff, so it is vital we are not complacent. We are all in this together.

Please check back on this page for any updates regarding our services and we invite you to call the clinic if you have any questions or concerns.
