Important patient information during COVID 19

Our Goal

All doctors, nurses and staff at Greenacres Surgery have complied with the SA Government mandatory vaccination for healthcare workers.

We continue to encourage everyone to seek vaccination for COVID-19, however we respect patients’ individual choice to remain un-vaccinated.

We do not discriminate against any person seeking healthcare.

To protect our patients, doctors and staff from COVID 19, we have put in place a number of precautionary measures in line with SA Health’s COVID-19 exposure risk assessment.

We thank you for your patience and support as we endeavor to keep our patients and staff safe.

Patients will be screened for any of the below symptoms:

Fever or chills
Cough
Sore throat
Congested or runny nose
Shortness of breath
Muscle or body aches
New loss of taste or smell

If you have any of these symptoms, do not enter the surgery but contact reception on 8261 1122. A telephone consult will be offered or a car park consult organised if your covid swab test is negative.

When booking and checking in for your appointment you will be required to answer some questions:

  • Do you have Cough, Cold, Flu, Sore throat, Runny nose or Fever?
  • Are you waiting for results from a COVID-19 test?
  • Have you been in contact with anyone who has or is suspected to have COVID-19?
