We Remain Open & Committed to Your Safety & Wellbeing

The Federal Government continues to advise Physiotherapy is considered an essential health service and people are allowed to travel and move about the community to attend such appointments.

The Federal Minister for Health The Honourable Greg Hunt declared that allied health businesses can continue working and are encouraged to do so. He confirmed that 'Face to Face' services for many Australians remains vital so where possible he encourages them to continue and thanked allied health workers for their courage, dedication and care. On the 23 April 2020 the Chief Health Officer of Queensland. Dr Jeanette Young, confirmed that Remedial Massage is now allowed to be provided for the management and prevention of injury.

We currently remain open to assist you with all your physiotherapy related services.

We are doing so with an increased focus on hygiene giving careful consideration to all advice being provided by the Australian Government Department of Health, Queensland Department of Health, Australian Physiotherapy Association and other relevant authorities to ensure the safety of our patients and staff alike.

 

Our Response

What we ask of you

Following Australian Government guidelines we are asking all patients who have travelled in the last 14 days not to present to the clinic and to contact us on 5527 7092 to reschedule your appointment once you have completed your mandatory quarantine period and we look forward to welcoming you back as soon as practically possible.

If you are displaying signs and symptoms of COVID-19 not to visit us until you have been cleared by your GP and/or returned a negative COVID-19 test result. This is to ensure the safety and wellbeing of our staff, other patients and the broader community.

What we are doing

We have always practiced strong hygiene and cleaning practices but during this time we have taken additional measures to ensure your safety and wellbeing as outlined below:

  • Frequent review of Government and Health authority public health recommendations implemented immediately upon communication
  • All staff have been trained and certified in the Australian Government Department of Health Infection Control Training for COVID-19
  • Increased the frequency of general practice cleaning throughout the day in line with the Australian Government recommendations which can be viewed here
  • Hand sanitiser is located throughout the clinic for use by all staff and patients
  • Face masks are available free of charge for use by patients if they wish to wear whilst at the clinic
  • Cleaning and disinfection of all treatment beds and treatment equipment used after each patient with alcohol based cleaning products
  • Frequent cleaning and disinfection of high touch surfaces throughout the clinic with alcohol based cleaning products
  • Adherence to social distancing guidelines by the spreading of patient waiting areas throughout the clinic as well as making use of outdoor waiting areas
  • Suspension of large group exercise and group Pilates classes.

We will continue to adapt our response in line with advice from the Australian Government and other relevant authorities.
