Mask Wearing Update

As you are likely aware, the government has lifted the mask mandate in medical centres.

We are humbly asking that for the time being, you continue to do so.

Wearing a mask is by no means a magic bullet for reducing infection spread, but it does help.

The health system is currently under enormous strain and there are a large number of infectious diseases in the community, some of which can be infectious without symptoms.

If you inadvertently got one of our staff sick, this could mean multiple cancelled appointments, leading to congested After Hours and Emergency Departments, leading to cancelled surgeries and clinics at hospitals.

We also see very vulnerable patients, such as those on cancer treatments or too young for immunisations, who cannot defend themselves from an infection in the same way most people can.

We think ethically it is the right thing to do to protect them by wearing a mask for a small part of your day, and hope you feel the same

The government in its press release acknowledges, “Mask wearing remains an important way we can prevent the spread of respiratory illnesses, including COVID-19, in health and disability care settings”.

We continue to ask that you report any infectious symptoms when booking so we can put you into an appropriate appointment with a doctor wearing protective equipment such as an N95 mask, gown and head visor.

We will review this in September, by which time we hope things will be settling a bit

Thank you for your continued support.
