Active Health Portland would like all of our patients and team members to stay safe during this pandemic.
With that in mind when you need to speak with your GP or allied health provider there are some important changes to way we are currently working.
Where possible all our patients will be offered a phone or video link telehealth appointment. This is to help protect patients and healthcare workers from the spread of the corona virus.
If you have had a telehealth appointment and your doctor has requested to have a face to face consult with you, there are some other differences to how this will work.
When booking your appointment it is very important to confirm your mobile phone number with the reception team and to bring that phone with you to your appointment.
- When you arrive at Active Health you will be asked to wait in your car until your clinician calls you on your mobile phone.
- When the clinician calls they will ask you a series of Covid-19 specific questions.
- The clinician will then indicate to you to come to the correct door and meet you at that entrance.
- When entering the practice the clinician will take your temperature and record it on a sticker to be placed on your person.
- The clinician will also ensure you have an appropriate face mask.
- You may then come in for your appointment.
