Coronavirus defence

Cornoavirus Outbreak
How can we help prevent the spread of Coronavirus?

Practising good hand and sneeze/cough hygiene is the best defence against most viruses.

You should:

· wash your hands frequently with soap and water, before and after eating, and after going to the toilet

· cover your cough and sneeze, dispose of tissues, and use alcohol-based hand sanitiser

· and if unwell, avoid contact with others (touching, kissing, hugging, and other intimate contact).

My Health Record
A ‘My Health Record’ is a secure electronic summary of an individual’s healthcare information.

The ‘My Health Record’ will support your journey through Australia's Healthcare system. Whether you are visiting a hospital, GP, specialist, emergency department, pharmacy or other healthcare professional, relevant and essential information can be accessed by both yourself and your healthcare provider.

Yes! Patients have control over what information is uploaded to their ‘My Health Record’.
Patient Privacy Controls: Patients have the ability to control which organisations can view their ‘My Health record by setting a ‘Record Access Code’. This restricts access to your My Health record so only organisations that have the code can view information.

My Health Records are extra beneficial for patients who
• Are raising young families
• Wish to be more involved with their healthcare
• Are frequent domestic travellers
• Are elderly
• Live in rural areas
• Suffer from a chronic disease

We can activate your ‘My Health Record’ for you whilst your visiting the surgery!
It takes 2-3 minutes and can be done while you’re waiting!
Speak to reception about activating a ‘My Health Record’ today!
