COVID-19 (Coronavirus)

Geelong Paediatric Group are currently working in a modified way to provide our services in a safe and controlled manner. Please read the information below.

We have staff working both at the practice and remotely but we are unable to answer phone enquiries at the current time. For any enquiries please email the practice at reception@g-pg.com.au and we will deal with the messages as soon as possible. If the matter is genuinely urgent, please leave a message on the telephone message bank and we will do our best to respond within 24 hours.

In accordance with the Department of health recommendations for physical distancing, we are asking our patients to follow the below requirements:

Face to Face / Physical Appointments

If your paediatrician feels that your child need a face to face consultation in the rooms, we ask that you attend the practice with only the child and one parent/guardian. You will be asked to wait in your car in the car park and follow the instructions on the notice next to the parking space.

From Monday 03/08/20, Facemasks will be compulsory for everyone over the age of 12. We expect all our patients to comply with this and bring their own masks to appointments. If you attend without masks, you may either purchase single use masks from us, or have your appointment via videolink instead.

All staff at the practice will also be wearing masks for safety.

Telehealth Appointments

When appropriate, your paedaitrician may ask that your appointment is conducted via a video link. This is called telehealth and we use a department of health verified system to make these calls. They can be undertaken from any device with a camera (smart phone, tablet, computer) and you will be sent a link to access the system prior to your appointment.

Please click on this here to go to our Telehealth system.

If video is not an option, in some circumstances we may be able to provide a telephone consultation. This will be discussed with you if the need arises.
