The team at Medicine on Second are still taking the health and welfare of our patients and staff very seriously.
We are still offering Telehealth appointments for any patients who are experiencing cold /flu like symptoms including sore throat, runny nose, fevers or cough.
We are asking patients when they enter the clinic that they read the A frame sign and answer the questions honestly. If you have any of the symptoms listed, have travelled overseas, have been in a known “hotspot” or have had contact with a confirmed case of Covid-19, please remain outside and either ring us from there or your car or make yourself known to staff and they will attend to you and give you a mask and ask you to remain outside.
We are ensuring that our seating is meeting social distancing requirements.
If patients arrive with a third party (husband, children, relatives) we will ask if they can remain outside if at all possible to limit our numbers.
We are regularly disinfecting surfaces and medical equipment.
Please use the automatic Hand Sanitizer available as you enter the clinic.
Together we will adapt to these unusual and unsettling circumstances, maintain high-quality health care, support each other and keep each other safe. We would like to thank each and every one of your for your support and co-operation.
Medicine on Second offers a wide range of medical services for all ages and health conditions.
