With current Stage 4 Restrictions, until September 13th, 2020, our Chiropractic service with Dr Paul remains open but limited in its service. No GP referral is required.
Chiropractic care must only be provided if the absence of, or delay of this care, would result in a significant change/deterioration in the patient/client’s functional independence necessitating escalation of care.
Examples provided by the DHHS of when it is appropriate for care to be provided to a patient include the following:
1 To avoid a requirement for specialist input/review
2 To avoid an increase in care needs and/or alternate accommodation
3 To avoid a hospital admission or emergency department presentation.
Our Myotherapy service with Daniel and Suzie is closed until Monday September 14th.
Our Nutrition Service with Alex has moved to the Telehealth option using Zoom/Skype/Phone.
We have implemented the use of face masks with surgical masks for all staff and require all patients to receive a temperature check by a staff member, upon arrival. Practitioners with face to face contact will now wear eye protection.
For any questions, please call us on 9887 4144.
To keep in line with current guidelines, and to keep our practice running smoothly and keep our patients and staff safe, we are committed to the following procedures:
Practising regular hand hygiene. Upon entry we require all patients to wash their hands before their appointment.
Practising social distancing. We require all patients to only bring themselves to their appointment, and have distanced the seats in the waiting room to reduce contact between patients. Please come at your appointment time.
Increased cleaning of all surfaces. After each patient has had their appointment and left our building, we sanitise each surface that may have been touched, including chairs in waiting room, door handles, bathroom taps etc. There is sanitiser in each practitioners room, and practitioners sanitise surfaces, and their hands before and after each patient.
Payment changes. We have asked all patients, where possible , to pay with card, instead of cash.
Practising respiratory etiquette. We require all patients to follow strict guidelines, including covering mouth/nose when coughing or sneezing, and washing hands afterwards. We also have asked any patient who has cold/flu like symptoms to please STAY HOME! We can reschedule your appointment for another time.
Please everyone take care, stay safe and be kind to each other!
