In line with the APA, we focused on the general health and wellbeing of the community. The COVID-19 pandemic places an added level of complexity and concern for patient care. The current situation is significantly affecting services and businesses everywhere. Our top priority will always be with our valued patients, the safety of our team members and continuity of our practices. We are following strictly to the advices and guidelines as set by Australian Physiotherapy Association.
1. Enforced hand washing and hygiene before and after contacting every patient as per previous practice.
2. Increased wiping down of all equipment before and after every patient.
3. Clean pillowcases and towels, you may bring your own towels if you like.
4. If you have been in contact with anyone who has been overseas OR if you are experiencing fever, coughing, sore throat, fatigue or short of breath, please call us immediately to cancel your appointment and we will reschedule it for you.
The APA has received the following advice from the Federal Minister for Health, The Hon Greg Hunt: The Australian Minister for Health has today confirmed that ALL allied health businesses can continue working and are encouraged to do so.
In addition he has indicated that they are now developing full allied health telehealth options within the week for allied health along with all other health and medical services. This will be part of a staged plan. “Face to face services for many remain vital so where possible, we encourage you to continue. I thank you for your courage, dedication and care”, the Minister has said.
