Respiratory symptoms

In-person appointments for patients with respiratory symptoms

Patients with respiratory symptoms including
fever, cough, runny nose and sore throat are required to show evidence of a negative PCR COVID-19 test received within 3 days, or 72 hours, of their face to face appointment time.

This policy applies to all patients with respiratory symptoms, including patients who are fully vaccinated against COVID-19.

Patients with without respiratory symptoms do not require a COVID-19 test prior to their face to face appointment.


Telehealth appointment for patients with respiratory symptoms 

If you are experiencing any respiratory symptoms including fever, cough, runny nose or sore throat and you do not yet have evidence of a negative COVID-19 test received within 3 days, or 72 hours, please book a Telehealth appointment and do not attend the practice in person.
You can book your Telehealth appointment online or via the AMS Connect App. You will be required to provide your credit card details, but you will not be charged until after your consultation. You will need to claim your own Medicare rebate using the invoice which will be emailed to you following your consultation.
