COVID-19

BORDERS HAVE OPENED:

What ‘s happening at Health at Campbelltown and Health at Newton?

Health at Campbelltown and Health at Newton are committed to providing ongoing high health care, as well as creating a safe workplace and practice for patients and staff, during times of COVID -19 transmission in the community. The Health @ Group encourages everyone to seek vaccination for COVID-19, and at the same time respect patient’s individual choice. We will not discriminate against any patient seeking care. To protect our patients, doctors and staff from COVID-19, we have put in place a number of precautionary measures in line with SA Health’s COVID-19 exposure risk assessment. 

Patients will be screened for any of the below symptoms:

  • Fever or chills
  • Cough
  • Sore throat
  • Congested or runny nose
  • Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
  • Muscle or body aches
  • New loss of taste of smell

 

If you have any of these symptoms a telephone or car park consult will be offered.

Our HotDoc online appointment system is currently available for telephone consults only, if you require a face to face appointment please ring the surgery so you can be screened with these questions by our reception staff.

When booking and checking in for your appointment you will be required to answer some questions:

  • Do you have Cough, Cold, Flu, Sore throat, Runny nose or Fever?
  • Are you waiting for results from a COVID-19 test?
  • Have you been in contact with anyone who has or is suspected to have COVID-19?
  • Have you traveled interstate or overseas in the last 14 days?
  • Are you fully immunized for COVID-19?

 

Any patient who is not double vaccinated:

  • Will be offered a telephone consult in the first instance
  • If the doctor deems you require a face to face consult, a car park consult will be arranged.

 

When inside the practice, please follow the below directions:

  • Surgical masks must be worn correctly at all times, covering both nose and mouth
  • You must sanitize your hands prior to entering the practice
  • You must check in using the QR Code check or manually sign in on entering the practice.
  • Physical distancing – 1.5m apart
  • You may be asked to wait in your car or outside the practice
  • Where possible, attend your appointment alone. If you require a support person, we ask that you bring one person only. For children, we ask that only one parent and no siblings attend the appointment (where possible).

 

We expect that our Doctors and staff are treated with respect at all times.

If you do not follow the above guidelines you may be putting Our Doctors, Staff and other patients at risk.

From Health at Campbelltown and Health at Newton we thank you for your continued support and patience during this time. We hope that by doing this, we will be in a strong position to continue to provide ongoing Health care to our patients.
