The Amuri Community Health Centre is 100% owned by the 'Amuri Community Trust' a not for profit organisation. Community ownership allows us to provide the best care in an ever changing environment and to attract the best health professionals. The charitable status of the Health Centre also allows us to seek funds which would not have been open to us under a traditional model.
Appointments will continue to be available both by telephone and face to face, as preferred by the patient. These will continue to be charged at the same rate.
Screening questions as to your current symptoms and symptom history will continue to be asked. Your honesty and openness with our triage questions ensures everyone’s safety and is essential so to help prevent Level 3
We respectfully ask again that only the patients with an appointment attend the Health Centre, where possible.
If anyone feels they need a support person or family member present, please discuss this when booking your appointment so arrangements can be made for this.
We return to utilise the ‘car park waiting room’ to control any congestion within the facilities. Please arrive for your appointment at the time given so as to reduce the number of patients in the waiting room, if you arrive vearly for an appointment you may be asked to return to your vehicle until your allocated appointment time.
If you have made an appointment and have respiratory, flu/cold like symptoms, cough or sore throat or have been identified as being at risk, you will be asked to enter the building from the back ambulance bay park, again please let us know when you arrive and wait in your car until your clinician is ready to see you.
As a team we will resume wearing masks/gloves where appropriate and will ask that you use hand sanitiser on arrival and wear a mask if required. Masks are encouraged when in public.
Please do not enter the waiting room until you have advised the receptionist of your arrival, seating is arranged appropriately. Which can be easily cleaned and sanitised.
We will continue to offer postal and email invoicing but we do have ‘contactless payments’ for your convenience. The eftpos machine will be sanitised after each transaction.
When waiting for the receptionist to be free, please stand on the dedicated markers to help to maintain adequate ‘Social Distancing’ between yourselves and the next person.
Covid-19 testing IS available & will continue to be undertaken for those with respiratory symptoms and it is vital those with symptoms (Cough/Runny nose/Sore throat/loss of smell) get checked out.
