Face to Face Appointments

12th June 2020

 

As the cases of COVID19 are starting to ease in Western Australia, it is still important for patients to maintain social distancing and isolate especially when unwell.

 

Queensgate Medical Centre welcomes patients to book for appointments in the clinic if you prefer to see the doctor rather than booking a Telehealth appointment. However, patients who have any cold or flu symptoms such as; runny nose, sore throat, cough, fever etc. are asked to not come in for any form of face to face appointment without first having a Telehealth consultation. If you have booked for a 'face to face' appointment via our online booking system and you have symptoms of a cold/flu, please contact reception immediately.

 

We understand patients may need to be physically assessed for these symptoms such as listening to the chest, checking sore throat, looking inside ear etc. however we need to rule out any unlikely potential risks of COVID19 to protect the safety of our staff, doctors and other patients. We ask patients to please respect and understand this protocol as we are only looking out for the well-being of others. Please ensure when calling to book an appointment and booking via Healthengine that you report any possible symptoms and to let reception know when queried.

 

Thank you so much to our patients for being so understanding during these uncertain times, you have all allowed our practice to adjust appropriately while remaining very patient.

Flu Vaccine - Now Available

14th April 2020

 

We are pleased to advise that both private and government flu vaccinations are now in stock at Queensgate Medical Centre. With the unusual health events this year surrounding COVID19, doctors are urging patients to vaccinate against the other strains of flu to avoid contracting and spreading another illness. Please keep in mind the annual flu vaccine does not protect individuals against COVID19, it is considered a separate virus however contains similar symptoms and the same categories of high risk individuals. Every flu season is different, particularly now COVID19 is heavily affecting our nation, it is extremely important for not only individuals but also the health care system to keep influenza numbers low. This means it will take effort from individuals to ensure they are vaccinated and continuing to social distance.

Influenza is a harsh and potentially life threatening illness that can often lead to hospitalisation. Flu vaccines cause antibodies to develop in the body approximately two weeks after receiving the vaccine. These antibodies provide protection against infection with the viruses that are used to make the vaccine. The seasonal flu vaccine protects against influenza viruses that research indicates will be the most common during the upcoming season. The flu vaccine protects against four different flu viruses which is known as the ‘flu quadrivalent,’ these are influenza A (H1N1) virus, Influenza A (H3N2) virus and two strains of influenza B viruses.

Eligible Government Funded Vaccine Patients:

  • Pregnant Women

  • Children aged between 6 months - under 5 years

  • People 65 years and older

  • Aboriginal people 6 months and older

  • People with a chronic illness


If you do not qualify for a government funded flu vaccine, you will receive a private flu vaccine which is $15 and your visit bulk billed.

Flu Clinic:
When: Our Flu Clinics will be operating Monday - Friday, 8am - 1pm.
How to book: Please do not book via Healthengine, please call reception to book.
Location: Queensgate is operating our Flu Clinic outside of our nurse’s door in the ambulance bay on the level 1 car park. This will allow less surface contamination, more space for social distancing and an open airspace. This action will result in a more sterile and safer environment for doctors, nurses and patients.
On arrival: Patients booked into the clinic will be asked to park towards the end of our level 1 car park and call reception from their vehicle to be marked as arrived. Patients will be asked to not enter the front reception. Patients can then sit in an available seat provided outside of our nurses door until one of the nurses are ready.

If you would like to book in to our Flu Clinic
Contact reception: 9456 1811

Facts about COVID-19

9th March 2020

 

Facts about COVID-19

 

  • it is transmitted via respiratory droplets (coughing, sneezing)

  • a respiratory droplet can travel around 1.5m

  • it can survive on smooth hard surfaces for up to 3 days

  • at risk groups include those of advanced age, having a chronic health condition such as diabetes, being pregnant, being on chemotherapy or having a poor immune system.

 

This is why the best way to avoid COVID-19:

  • wash your hands with soap and water, rubbing between fingers for at least 20 seconds.

  • social distancing of 1.5m

  • cough/sneeze into your elbow rather than your hand which can then contaminate a surface if you have COVID-19

  • stay home if you have any respiratory infective symptoms

  • if soap and water not available, use hand gel.

 

Queensgate Medical Centre Doctors and Staff wish you a safe next few months .
