COVID-19 Patient Info
Thrive GP is committed to providing our patients with the best possible medical care at all times, particularly during the Corona Virus pandemic.
UPDATE: government changes to telehealth. Due to the recent government announcement and changes as of July 20th, we will no longer be offering telehealth services to new patients. Not to worry though, we ask that you call us on 0473 003 868 to book an initial face to face appointment with the Dr. For current patients given the recent increase in COVID cases we do ask that you consider using telehealth for your appointments when possible please!
We have temporarily moved to prioritise TeleHealth consultations to ensure the safety of you and our staff. All consultations will be via telehealth. If during your telehealth consultation the doctor requests a face to face meeting with you, the doctor will discuss appointment availability for the same day and make an appointment on your behalf.
If a face to face consultation is deemed necessary please make sure you have read our visit policy.Patient-alert-poster-Coronavirus-A3-v8-1
If you have any signs of a respiratory infection (such as fever, cough, sore throat), please
phone for advice. (0473 003 868)
For general advice re Corona Virus or other health concerns, any member of the
community can call Health Direct: 1800 022 222
To reduce the risk of transmission, we ask that all patients to wait in their cars on arrival to the medical practice. Access to the practice is restricted. When you arrive at the clinic, either Ruth Myvalt (Practice Nurse) or Lisa Opie (GP) will call you on your mobile phone to discuss any necessary health issues prior to your face to face consultation. Please be aware, that your temperature will be taken as you enter. We ask that you move promptly to and from the practice. This is to limit the amount of “face to face” time for both patients and staff.
NSW Health has also established Covid 19 Clinics, the closest is in Goulburn, on the
grounds of the Goulburn Base Hospital. This will open 10am to 2pm Monday to Friday.
