COVID-19 - Action plan in line with RANZCOG recommendations 

 

We acknowledge the seriousness of COVID-19  crisis and its implications to the health service. These changes are necessary to  minimise the risk of infection to all our patients and staff and the community. 

* Fortunately we are able to resume IVF and elective surgery, albeit with reduced capacity and with necessary precautions. 

* We continue to provide most consultations via Tele health with exceptions as necessary. This includes gynaecology consultation, planning for surgery if needed and advise on medical treatment until such time that surgical treatment is available.  

* Fertility management will continue as normal and IVF treatment is back in operation ( reduced capacity)

  • Most appointments are still preferred to be Tele health ( with exceptions - colposcopy, ultrasound etc)  

  • Please endeavour to complete all your forms online. Do not attend practice to drop off form etc unless you have too.  

  • ONLY essential support people are permitted to attend appointments. 

  • NO patients or staff are permitted into SOH if at risk for COVID-1

  • ALL patients and staff are screened for COVID-19 at SOH entry 

  • ALL surface are wiped down regularly during the day

  • Keeping consulting room doors closed and windows OPEN (when appropriate)

  • Any face to face appointments will be kept to 15 minutes or less (the COVID 19 data shows this reduces transmission risk

 

If we find ourselves in the unfortunate scenario of a positive COVID-19 case at SOH. SOH  will be closed for a minimum of 14 days. We do have offsite access to our clinical software and will be able to access results and address urgent queries via email / phone. This is an unprecedented time in healthcare and in our community, where we must put safety first. We appreciate your patience and understanding.
