A MESSAGE TO OUR PATIENTS
Northcare Physio has been monitoring the global Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic and rapidly evolving response measures within Australia to curb the spread.
We are committed to our people, our clients, our patients and our responsibilities and are acting on the advice from the Australian Government and the Department of Health, together with professional medical bodies, while putting our own precautionary measures and initiatives into action.
As an allied health provider, we understand our important role during this time, both as an employer and in supporting the health of those who rely on us each and every day – our patients and our staff.
With an expert team of clinicians at the ready and the infrastructure in place to allow us to continue to adapt to the changing circumstances, Northcare is continuing to provide accessible care for all.
Northcare is following the advice from the Department of Health and State Government guidelines regarding precautions that are needed to minimise risks concerned with COVID-19.
We are following the recommended health and safety precautions, and are providing advice to our staff via a 24/7 helpline, and a referral for testing if required.
We are ensuring our staff maintains high hygiene standards in our centres, including practising proper hand sanitising procedures, together with sneeze and cough etiquette. We have posters in all Northcare centres regarding COVID-19 and aim to minimise the risk of transmission.
All surfaces in our Northcare clinics are cleaned every morning and regularly during the day using an antibacterial, antimicrobial cleaning product that reduces the risk of harmful viruses, moulds, fungus, algae and any other possible harmful pathogenic bacteria.
We have advised our staff to stay home if they are unwell and self-isolate if necessary.
