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 our phone lines are open again. For less immediate issues or enquiries we reccomend emailing the practice at reception@g-pg.com.au and we will attend to your issue as soon as possible.

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

We are returning to more face to face appointments as the COVID restrictions ease. When you arrive for an appointment our reception staff will ask you some general screening questions and check you in over the phone. We still have a limit on the number of people allowed in the room so you may be requested to wait in your car if the rooms are full. To aid with the limits we ask that you please limit the number of people attending for an appointment to only immidiate carers.

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.
