❌CORONAVIRUS UPDATE (COVID-19)❌
The WFP Team has been closely following the COVID-19 situation.
?WFP is offering Telephone Consultations as well as Skype Consultations for our Patients who have been advised to self-isolate as well as for our Patients who would prefer not to attend WFP in person. This service will attract a Private Fee and currently there is no Medicare Rebates available for phone or Skype consultations in this situation.
?WFP will be running a Patient self-collection clinic and brief assessment for our high-risk Patients. To ensure our Staff’s protection, there will be minimal Patient contact for our Doctors and Nurses with P95 masks. This will be a bulk billed clinic for those Patients who fit the criteria. For further information and triage, we are asking all Patients to contact the Practice on 4948 3323.
?Please contact the Clinic immediately if you are experiencing any flu like symptoms!
❗️Wash your hands with soap and water often and dry hands thoroughly.
?♂️Cover coughs and sneezes with a tissue or the inside or your elbow. Throw away used tissues straight after and wash your hands.
?♀️Keep your distance from those who are coughing or sneezing.
?Currently if you are well, there is no evidence that wearing a facemask will stop you from catching a virus like Coronavirus, so if you are well, no mask is needed.
