Usual Business Hours will resume as from Tuesday 4th January 2022 & Bundoora Health (Second Branch) will re-open, however we are running short staffed both in Medical and Reception staff over the Summer Holiday period and as we all deal with the new COVID wave of cases in our community. We ask that you be understanding, show patience and be kind to all aspect of our Andrew Place Clinic/ Bundoora Health Staff as we are doing our very best to continue providing quality care and services during these extended challenging times. We appreciate your understanding as we all work together to stay safe in 2022.

Your patience is much appreciated during this very busy time. We thank you for your cooperation.
As you are all aware we are now facing extended Covid-19 waves and cases in our community. This can be a worrying time but we, the Andrew Place Clinic staff, want to assure you that we remain dedicated to assisting our patients and their families throughout these challenging circumstances.
In order to minimize the potential spread of Covid-19 we will be implementing some changes to the way Andrew Place Clinic runs and we would greatly appreciate your cooperation. Also be aware that this is a rapidly changing situation and as such advice and procedures are likely to change. Please continue to check out website for the most updated information.
Due to the coronavirus pandemic we are unable to see any patients with cold or flu symptoms (including cough, fever, sore throat or runny nose) in-clinic without COVID-Safe arrangements being made. We ask that you book a telehealth consult – which is a consultation conducted over the phone (a facetime or zoom chat can also be arranged) for the doctor to make an assessment or have a consultation with you, during this time the doctor will inform you how the consultation will proceed and when and if you will be able to enter the clinic. If you are booking an appointment to consult with your doctor for an unrelated issue – but also have cold and flu symptoms – even if very mild – we ask that you arrange a telehealth appointment, inform the receptionist so that COVID-Safe arrangements can be made or postpone your appointment until you are symptom free.
In order to minimise potential exposure to the coronavirus, while you are within the clinic we will be implementing the following:-
· Please call the reception when you arrive for your appointment and remain in your car. Reception will log you as arrived and when the Doctor/ Nurse is ready to see you, they will call and instructed you when and if you are to enter the clinic. Upon entering the clinic ALL people must sanitise hands as they pass by reception and patients >12yrs old must have a mask on and worn appropiately and correctly when entering and while within the clinic.
· Waiting room seats have been separated to create distances which will minimise your exposure to other patients, if you need to wait in the waiting room. By limiting the number of people in the waiting room/ clinic; we therefore reduce your risk. Similarly you may notice a change in the seating arrangements in all consulting rooms.
· Please ensure you are wearing a mask when entering and within the clinic, use hand sanitiser as you enter the clinic and then again on leaving.
Again, these are worrying times and sometimes that worry can become significant distress. Please contact Andrew Place Clinic if you are concerned about your own mental health, or that of a loved one. For 24 hour a day telephone crisis support please contact Lifeline on 13 11 44.
Thank you for your understanding.
