Our priority is the health and wellbeing of our patients, staff and GPs. It has, therefore been necessary for us to take measures to ensure that we can continue to meet the needs of all of our patients. As a result, to safeguard the health of vulnerable GPs and minimise their risk of contracting coronavirus, acutely ill patients may be diverted to another GP. Therefore, if you think you have any form of a contagious illness, please advise our staff at the time of booking an appointment or immediately on arrival to protect other patients and our staff.
If you are experiencing anxiety, distress or concern, please visit Beyond Blue, Mindspot, e-headspace, and the COVID-19 support page on the Head to Health website for advice on looking after your mental health during the coronavirus outbreak.
If you are particularly distressed and need to see your GP, you may be eligible for a telephone consultation if you are susceptible to COVID-19 or currently in isolation. Please note that this service is only available
As the COVID-19 situation progresses, we would like you to know how we have responded to this unprecedented global crisis. Our practice has been preparing for the coronavirus pandemic since early February, and on Tuesday 10th March, ahead of the WHO declaration, we implemented our pandemic response plan.
We want you to feel safe and confident in the knowledge that we are all doing everything we can to limit exposure to you and your family, our doctors and staff. We value your loyalty and trust and want to share with you the measures we have taken to protect our patients, doctors, staff and their families.
We are committed to meeting your needs, so it is business as usual at Burton Street Family Practice. However, we are asking you to assist us by observing our instructions so that we may continue to minimise the risk of exposure to other patients, doctors and staff. Furthermore, we ask for your patience as we manage the increased workload and telephone enquiries, particularly as the influenza season draws near, and the demand for appointments increases.
Thank you for your co-operation during this challenging time and ask that if you have any concerns or feedback about how we, at Burton Street Family Practice, are dealing with this situation to please let us know. You can provide your comments by completing our feedback form and leaving it in the box provided, or by email to email@example.com.
Flu immunisation - updated information as at 28/03/2020 -
The flu season is nearly upon us, and many of our patients have been calling to find out when they can have their flu shot.
Given the COVID-19 pandemic, the Department of Health is recommending vaccination against influenza as soon as it is available.
Getting the flu and COVID-19 at the same time can make you very ill, so the Department of Health will be releasing vaccines earlier this year. Vaccines for people aged 65 and older have now arrived, please phone the practice on 9458 4558 to book an appointment with your GP. All other government-funded vaccines and private vaccines are expected to arrive in early April. We will continue to provide updates as they come to hand.
In 2020, influenza vaccines funded through the NIP are available to the following groups. This is due to their increased risk of complications from influenza.
This year all WA primary school-aged children can receive the influenza vaccine for free.
A charge of $14.00 will apply to people not eligible for government-funded vaccines.
