Ada Clinic and latest COVID outbreak
Our doctors and staff fully support our community’s need to slow down and stop the spread of COVID-19 virus, and this latest variant is much more contagious than our first lockdown.
Though we are a medical practice with strict infection control measures, the COVID-19 virus is much more virulent; easier to transmit than other viruses.
We cannot guarantee 100 percent the safety of our patients travelling to our clinic or our clinic staff. For this reason and that our services are elective, we have decided to close the practice for all elective medical and cosmetic procedures until it is deemed that the spread of COVID-19 has been contained.
At present, the lockdown is due to finish at midnight on the 9th of July. We understand this will be a big inconvenience to those affected and we will endeavour to rebook all cancelled appointments as early as possible.
Our Glebe clinic will be open for telephone enquiries, new appointments, rescheduling appointments and general enquiries from 9.30am – 3.30pm from Monday to Friday.
Our doctors will still be available to address enquiries regarding treatments or any concerns about previous treatments. To contact the doctors, either call the practice on 02 9552 1442 or send an email with photos if possible to firstname.lastname@example.org.
How do I know if staff at clinic, including the doctor has COVID-19?
Staff who have known contacts of COVID-19 positive patients are required by law to self-isolate at home.
Staff with symptoms of fever, cough and fatigue are required not to attend work and directed for COVID-19 testing.
Should I let the clinic know if I am unsure about people I have been in contact with?
Yes, you should. A determination of each circumstance will be assessed by the medical practitioner.
Is it absolutely safe to have cosmetic medical procedure at this time?
It is safe to the extent possible, comparable to going to hairdresser, dentist and other similar places where social distancing disciplines, hand sanitisation and the wearing of personal protection equipment are practised.
Will cosmetic injections make me more susceptible to COVID-19 virus infection?
There is no evidence that cosmetic procedures make patients who are otherwise well more susceptible to disease processes, including COVID-19.
If I develop side effects from my cosmetic medical procedure, how do I know if they are not related to COVID-19?
Side effects from cosmetic medical procedure are different from the effects of COVID-19 which are primarily shortness of breath, persistent cough and fever.
Can I bring a friend with me when I attend the clinic?
It is preferred that you come alone to your appointment, but if necessary, you may bring a member of your family if they reside with you.
My children are at home so is it ok if I bring them with me to the clinic?
Children should NOT attend with you.
If I develop a fever, a cough or feel unwell after visiting the clinic, what should I do?
It is essential that you advise the clinic should these symptoms develop as soon as they occur after your attendance.
Will I be able to contact someone at the clinic after my procedure if I have any questions?
Yes. You will have contact details provided to you or simply call the office number 9552 1442 or if outside business hours leave a recorded message. Alternatively, send an email to email@example.com.
Best wishes for your health and safety during this difficult period.
