Dear Patients,

Just a quick update on the clinic procedures and policies around Coronavirus (COVID-19).

We are committed to maintaining the highest standards of infection control while still providing our essential community-based services; Physiotherapy, Exercise Physiology and Remedial Massage.

We will not place staff or patients at undue risk of contracting coronavirus. We as a company, as a group of people, as friends and as communities, need to look out for each other.

We need to demonstrate the basic human social functions of compassion, empathy, understanding and support for all, as we all are, or will be, affected by this virus in some way.

SA Health are encouraging all important health business to continue to provide our vital health services.

We are ‘upping the ante’ on all hygiene practices in the clinics including:

  • All common surfaces such as door handles, water cooler, chairs, reception desk, pens and bathroom are sanitised regularly throughout each day.
  • Monitoring the incoming of people who have travelled to high or moderate risk countries.
  • Monitoring the incoming of unwell patients in the clinic.
  • Magazines and toys will be removed from the waiting room for the time being
  • We encourage you to come alone to your appointment if possible, this will minimise the numbers of people in the clinics
  • Keeping our therapists’ safe and health in top shape!

To help us keep the clinic safe for all, can we please ask that you:

  • Notify reception if you have been in contact with the Coronavirus.
  • Reschedule your appointment if you feel even slightly unwell.
  • Do not attend the clinic if you have travelled to any high or moderate risk country within the last 14 days- See below for more detail.
  • Sanitise your hands upon entry and exit to the clinic.
  • Adhere to any other hygiene protocols within the clinic.

You may not want to sit in our waiting room, and that’s okay:
