However, Patients who are experiencing cold/flu symptoms, have a temperature, have visited known COVID hotspot locations, or have received a confirmed positive (including those with probable or suspected probable outcomes) COVID test result are unable to be treated in our rooms, and must remain in isolation as per the current health directive. However, please call our rooms for alternative management.

You will need to be wearing a mask and sanitise your hands prior to entering our rooms. In addition, our nurses or reception staff will have mandated questions that we will ask you prior to entry.
