DON’T IGNORE YOUR HEALTH
We were reminded recently by the Chief Medical Officer of Australia that while we must be careful going outside our home, taking care of your ongoing medical needs is very important.
Our Medical Centre is a very safe place to visit. It may look a bit different to when you last came but it is a very safe environment. We are practicing strict hygiene and social distancing measures and diverting any potential COVID-19 cases.
So don’t ignore your need to personally visit Dalyellup Family Medical Centre and speak with your GP.
TELEHEALTH AT DFMC
The Australian Government has extended Medicare funding until 31st March 2021 for GPs to provide services via telehealth (video calls or videoconferencing), or phone if telehealth is not available. The purpose is to allow people to access essential health services in their home to reduce their risk of exposure to the COVID-19 virus.
Currently we are bulk billing all telehealth and phone consultations, so there are no costs for these services.
- Please call DFMC on 9795 6422 to book a telehealth or phone consultation if required.
- If you have a smartphone with email on it, we will send you a link for the video call. We can also make this video call on your tablet, laptop or computer.
- 5-10 minutes before your telehealth appointment open the link emailed to you.
- You will be asked to give your first name and then hit the ‘check in’ button.
- The GP will call you.
If you have respiratory symptoms (cough, sore throat) please measure your temperature before the consultation if you have a thermometer.
