COVID VACCINATION CLINIC - STARTING LATE APRIL EARLY MAY
We are very excited to confirm that Karuna-maya Medicine has been selected to be a Covid-19 Vaccination Clinic.
However, the roll out is going to take some time as we have been given an initial allocation of only 50 vaccines per week starting late April early May. We will be inviting our high-risk patients for vaccination as a priority.
You can check which phase of the roll out you will become eligible in, through the government vaccine eligibility checker at https://covid-vaccine.healthdirect.gov.au/eligibility. We will be selecting subgroups from the current eligibility phase to be invited for vaccination based on our vaccine supply.
Face to Face Appointment, Telehealth Continues and Billing Changes from 1 October 2020
From 1 October 2020 we will be offering face to face consultations as well as continuing telehealth consultations. To help us all get back to a sustainable “normal”- please be advised that KMMs normal billing policy and practices will also resume. Fees apply to all consultations including telephone and telehealth. Bulk billing is also available at the doctor’s discretion. Please contact reception with any questions.
We will be utilising telehealth/telephone appointments. Your doctor will call you as close to your allocated appointment time. If your doctor requires you to attend the practice an appointment time will be made for you.
Due to available space in the practice and Consult rooms we ask that only the person for whom the appointment is for attends. Only one parent or guardian for children and only one carer if required for all other patients will be allowed.
Telehealth appointments ( phone and video) are also available for Belinda Gough - Psychologist, please call our reception team for more information or to book an appointment.
Patients with symptoms of a cold/flu will be seen in their cars if required. Parking will be available at the back of the practice under the carport. Further instructions will be given when you make your appointment arrive.
If you develop a fever, cough or shortness of breath please attend your closest Emergency Department. We do not have the facilities to treat you in an emergency or test for COVID 19.
Please call the Coronavirus Hotline on 1800 675 398 for advice. If you are really unwell, call 000.
Due to increased risk The chief medical officer is advising mask wearing when you cannot social distance, or in higher risk areas, such as when visiting the GP. As such we will be asking all patients to PLEASE WEAR YOUR OWN FACEMASK WHEN ATTENDING THE PRACTICE. This is for the protection of our staff, and you.
