DO YOU HAVE AN APPOINTMENT AND HAVE TESTED POSITIVE TO COVID IN THE LAST 7 DAYS?
If you have tested positive to COVID in the last 7 days, please notify Reception staff and wait outside or in your car for your Doctor to start your appointment as a phone call.
Please remember all health staff are still required to isolate for 7 days if tested positive to COVID, so please help us keep staffing available to treat you and your family.
INFORMATION REGARDING LONG TELEHEALTH APPOINTMENT
The Government only rebates short (less than 20 minutes) telehealth consultations, so if your telehealth consultation lasts longer than 20 minutes, your government rebate will still only provide the shorter consult rebate.
Please be aware that we are unable to provide long telehealth consultations for DVA patients, unless it is for mental health matters.
ARE YOUR PATIENT DETAILS UP TO DATE?
On arrival, please advise Reception if you have an Aged Pension or Concession Card and any change in address or contact details.
If you are wanting consideration for anti-viral treatment to help stop COVID-19 infection from becoming more severe, you are required to make a telehealth appointment with your GP. This often requires a long telehealth appointment. To book an appointment online, please go to our “Book now” tab and click on “Telehealth COVID ASSESSMENT & MANAGEMENT”.
For assistance after hours when the Practice is closed, please call the Virtual Ward on 1300 847 833.
Albany Hills Radius Medical Centre is an approved COVID-19 vaccination provider.
*IMPORTANT PATIENT MESSAGE RE TELEHEALTH APPOINTMENTS*
Due to Medicare guidelines to be eligible for a Telehealth consult rebate, you are required to have had a face to face consult with one of our GPs in the last 12 months.
Please refer to our Schedule of Fees under FAQs tab.
We remain dedicated to keeping you safe throughout the entire COVID-19 challenge.
*Please note that credit/debit card details are required at the time of booking to process billing at the conclusion of your telehealth consultation.*
Sometimes our GPs are delayed by patients with urgent or complex issues.
We apologise if you’re asked to wait and thank you for your patience.
If a telehealth appointment has been booked, we please ask that you have your mobile phone with you at your allocated appointment time. If the Doctor’s phone call is not answered at this time or within 1 hour from the appointment time, then a non-attendance fee of the full consultation fee may be applicable.
