COVID-19 Update

Due to the impact of COVID-related illness, some staff shortages are being experienced. 

We thank you for your ongoing patience during this time and ask that staff be treated respectfully as they work to provide quality care.  

Important information:

GPcare is committed to keeping our patients, staff and doctors safe at all times.

Please visit the COVID-19 SA Health website for information - including if you need to self-isolate, quarantine or get tested.

Please be advised of the following policy when booking an appointment at GPcare.

If you are experiencing respiratory symptoms:

All patients with respiratory symptoms (cough, fever, sore throat, shortness of breath, or a loss of sense of smell or taste), need to phone for an appointment (do not book online) and you will receive instructions for your appointment.

Telehealth in the first instance will be utilised and if you require a face to face review, you may be required to have a negative COVID-19 swab within 72 hours of your appointment; the GP will instruct this as required.

Please also note:

Telehealth –Fees may apply if patients are not eligible for telehealth under Medicare.

It is essential to continue to observe social distancing and we continue to limit numbers in our waiting room, we ask you not to remain in the waiting area unnecessarily and, where a carer is required to accompany an appointment, this is limited to one person.

To continue to deliver our high standards of care, the changes we make will be to ensure the safety of our patients, staff and doctors as the COVID-19 environment changes. We thank you for your respect and patience.
