PRACTICE CHANGES AS OF 13/12/2021

10th December, 2021

In line with the Queensland border reopening, Wellers Hill Medical Centre will be implementing the following changes as of Monday 13th December 2021.

We will continue operating for all face-to-face consultations for non-symptomatic patients.

It will be a condition of entry that face masks are to be worn at all times while inside the practice, including in the Doctors room. This is to protect you, other patients, in particular those who may be more vulnerable, as well as our reception, nursing and medical staff.

We also ask that you attend appointments alone if possible or with one other person, maintain social distancing where possible and maintain proper hand hygiene practices.

For patients who have ANY of the symptoms below, a telehealth consultation will be required first if you have not had a negative COVID test in the past 3 days.

If you have had a negative COVID test in the past 3 days and still have ANY of the symptoms below, telehealth consultations are still preferred however, you can request a face-to-face consultation in our respiratory clinic (proof of negative result will required).
