New COVID-19 cases in Queensland, means that there have been updates to the Queensland Government Guidelines.
We take the health and safety of our patients and our team very seriously. Gasworks Medical Practice has made some changes that you need to be familiar with before you come in for your next visit.
When you arrive at the practice you will notice our friendly reception staff wearing masks along with your doctor during your consultation. These masks are to protect our patients, doctors and staff.
We also encourage all patients to wear masks according to the Queensland Government Guidelines to your appointment, to ensure the safety of yourself and others around you. If you do not own a mask they are available at the chemist next door.
We are asking patients where possible to please come alone to your appointment and only 1 parent / carer / guardian may attend with a child.
