Obviously there is a lot of concern in the community regarding the Coronavirus outbreak and the measures that are being put in place to combat it.
At this stage veterinary clinics are open for business. We are currently not classified as essential services but internationally Veterinary services are regarded as essential services and the Australian Veterinary Association is currently trying to ensure that we are classified as such so that we can remain open to the public.
In order to remain available to our clients we need to ensure that our members of staff remain well and are able to work. In order to achieve this we ask that clients adhere to the following clinic policies:
1. If you have travelled in the past 14 days, have been exposed to coronavirus or are currently unwell PLEASE DO NOT COME TO THE CLINIC. Call us and discuss your needs and we can see how we can best help you.
2. Practice good hygiene. We will be disinfecting the clinic on a regular basis through the day. Staff will also disinfect commonly used items after every use.
3. Limit the number of visitors to a consultation to 1. Please arrange for other family members or friends to stay at home or in the car during your visit to the clinic.
4. Payment – please no cash. Use the tap and go function on the eftpos machine or make credit card payment over the phone.
5. If you are an at risk member of the public please call us to discuss how we can limit your exposure at the clinic.
6. Please call ahead to order food or repeat medications so that we can limit your time within the practice as well as to ensure the items you require are available.
Please be patient with us as we navigate through this situation together. There will be disruptions at times if staff become unavailable, if orders are delayed or if suppliers run out of medications. We will be distributing food and medications evenly amongst clientele as far as possible.
This is an ever evolving situation and we will be available to our clients as long as we possibly can. Should the severity of the situation change we will release more information as to how we propose to continue to deliver services to the local community.
