COVID-19 Updates 

At Albemarle Medical Practice we are monitoring the COVID-19 pandemic carefully to ensure we are providing the best possible support to our patients during this outbreak. 

 

We have put in place appropriate measures to ensure infection control is maintained. We clean the reception area, waiting room and other high contact areas three times per day with accredited cleaning agents. 

No patients with cold and flu symptoms, fevers or other respiratory symptoms are allowed into the building other than into our established fever clinic at the rear entrance of the practice. In our fever clinic we apply the appropriate infection control measures and our doctors use appropriate Personal Protective Equipment (masks, glasses, gloves and gowns). 

 

We are asking only patients and essential company attend the practice to make sure the waiting room is not full and are currently running an outdoor waiting room. 

 

We have also removed all toys and magazines from the waiting room and have increased the distance between chairs to ensure social distancing is practiced. 

We will continue to monitor advice from NSW Health, RACGP and WHO.

What can you do to help us?

  • Please call ahead before entering our practice. Especially if you are suffering from cold or flu symptoms. 

  • Be honest with our staff when we ask you about your symptoms. .

  • Please be patient with our staff during this time.
