Goyder’s Line Medical is now able to offer phone consults for vulnerable patients requiring advice, scripts, sick certificates, referrals and other conditions where face-to-face contact is not required. We recommend patients who are able to come into the clinic do so to give the best care we can.
If your phone call is for scripts we can deliver them directly to the local pharmacy in each practice location, and you can collect your medications from there.
Our reception staff will also be asking all patients screening questions. PLEASE DO NOT LIE ABOUT YOUR TRAVEL HISTORY, COVID-19 EXPOSURE OR ANY COLD AND FLU LIKE SYMPTOMS. To do so is putting medical staff and other patients at risk and will not be tolerated. Please look after the doctors, nurses and admin staff that look after you.
Any patients with cold or flu like symptoms are to have a phone consult and sent to the hospital to be swabbed for COVID-19. We are unable to provide clearance certificates for patients.
If you are unwell with cough, fevers, aches, cold/flu symptoms, but your symptoms are mild, then please stay home and do not attend work, school or gatherings until you have fully recovered. If your symptoms are severe please phone the clinic or hospital for further advice.
There is no need to panic. In general, please follow these simple steps as recommended by the Dept. of Health:
– Regular hand washing
– Stay 1.5m away from others
– Avoid attending non-essential gatherings of people
– Remote work if possible
– Minimise unnecessary travel
