12/03/2020 – CLOSURE OF ONLINE BOOKINGS UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE
We have made the difficult decision to shut down the ability to make appointments online for all Panaceum Group practices and departments. This is due to patients using the online system to gain an appointment for Coronavirus assessment, which puts other patients and the practice at risk. For the safety of all and to quickly get patients the testing they need, those that have a potential risk of Coronavirus are being managed away from the practice premise using a new telehealth system.
We hope you will understand that we must protect the practice from a potential transmission of Coronavirus, not only to protect patients in the waiting room but also the community of Geraldton. If we do have a positive result for Coronavirus the practice is at risk of being closed for up to 14 days. The impact of this on the community would be too high and we are doing everything we can to manage this risk.
You can help us by calling if you have concern that you may have come in to contact with the Coronavirus, have travelled internationally in the past 14 days or have cold or flu symptoms.
Our resources are at the greatest stretch that we have ever experienced, as with all health care facilities, so please follow advice being given by public health – stay home and call.
As we have shut our online bookings our phone lines will be busier than ever, we ask you to please be patient. If your enquiry is not urgent please call outside of our busiest times. Our business busiest times are 8am-9.30am and 12-2pm.
Thank you for your understanding. It needs a united community response that is sensible and measured to get through risks like this.
