We want to thank our doctors, nurses and practice staff! In recent weeks, they have stepped forward and shown us commitment and courage in a time of change and uncertainty. As the world looks on, aghast as the pandemic tightens its grip on humanity, it is on these professions we hold our breath. In all their education, degrees and qualifications, they were not taught to be soldiers. Yet the expectation is unspoken, that they can manage their feelings of trepidation as each day they enter in the fight to help others.
Since COVID-19 hit Australian soil, like many in the industry, our team has worked their days with minimal potentially inadequate supplies. As a Group, we have resolved this industry-wide issue for now and will continue to work with our valued suppliers and government for stock. We have also transformed dramatically to protect both our healthcare team and our patients. We’ve introduced Telehealth consultations, so patients can access GP’s from home. We’ve installed hygiene stations and social distancing measures on-site, and are rolling out safety screens for reception teams. Healthcare has also redefined itself in the matrix of the outbreak and our entire team adapted swiftly, proving in a time of need to be both versatile and accommodating.
While it is still early in the fight, we wanted to take a moment to say we are truly grateful to have each of our doctors, nurses and practice staff members by our side. Your services to our patients and community are invaluable.
Thank you again.
