In order to improve the safety of the community, of our patients and of our staff during the Coronavirus pandemic, Avoca Street Medical Centre will need to implement some temporary changes to our general practice services. Telephone consults are available and preferred.
However, patients will be able to book a face to face consultation (provided they have no symptoms of cough, fever, sore throat or runny nose OR have had a negative recent COVID test). Face to face consultations will be kept strictly within 10 minutes to stay under the duration outlined by the NSW Health definition of "close contacts".
ALL PATIENTS ARE REQUIRED TO WEAR FACE MASKS WHILE IN OUR OFFICE
Please call us on (02) 9399 3335 for an appointment.
Patients with any symptoms are encouraged to directly attend the COVID Clinics for testing. Both open from 10am to 8pm, 7 days per week:
- Prince of Wales Hospital (Building 14B, Ground Floor, Avoca Street, Randwick)
- Sydney Children's Hospital - under 16 year olds (Hospital Road, High St End)
Patients who have tested negative but with ongoing symptoms will be able to attend our practice for assessment after advising staff.
Meanwhile, please heed current public health pandemic advice: stay inside your home, wash hands, observe physical distancing, regular exercise and maintain mental wellness.
