We can all do our part by slowing down spread if we practice social distancing. This means even if you’re out doing your exercises or getting the groceries please maintain a distance of 1.5m from each other. You could even turn it into a game like I do, think Temple Run and avoiding the ‘obstacles’. 🏃🏼♀️ Take care and stay healthy 😘
Don’t be alarmed if you see me and Annie wearing masks today in clinic. Given the nature of COVID-19, we desperately don’t want to spread any bugs to our patients who may be immunocompromised, elderly, frail or pregnant.
So if you’ve recently travelled abroad in the past 14 days or have been in close contact with a case of Coronavirus, or are concerned you have symptoms of the virus, please call the clinic in advance.
We are unable to test for the virus and we will happily give you advice and direct you to a local testing centre.
Let’s keep our General Practice protected together so we can continue looking after you.
Looking for toilet paper? 🧻💩 Whilst toilet paper is very important, there are measures we should all be practising to stop coronavirus propagating.
If we all practice regular thorough hand hygiene and stay at least 1 meter away from anyone that is coughing and sneezing we can halt its reproduction. Similarly, as we enter the colder months, if you have symptoms of a cold, practice good hygiene and dispose of tissues regularly.
Summer Dreaming ☀️ With autumn settling in, long summer nights are soon to be replaced with rain and summer holiday getaways are soon to be forgotten with the cooler climates.
This can, for a number of Australians lead to a condition known as Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD), whereby, some people experience symptoms of low mood, lack of energy, sleeping excessively or feeling tired all the time.
If you or someone you know are affected, help is out there in the form of light therapy, psychological therapies or in other cases medication. For more information be sure to pop by for a consult.
As a general practitioner, a lot of collaboration with other health professionals goes on behind the scenes. From speaking to the local pharmacist about which is the best medication to offer you, to speaking with hospital specialists about referrals and management plans.
Whilst it can be time consuming on a busy day, I believe it is an important part of the job to provide you with the most comprehensive medical care helping you to achieve your health goals.
