As always the Junic Specialist Centre is committed to providing you with the best services possible especially in this challenging environment as we all respond to the changing situation around COVID-19.

As you may have heard from the government announcements, healthcare workers including physiotherapists and other health care services are encouraged to remain open but with additional safe practices in place.

As such, our Women’s Health Specialist – Dr Uche Menakaya, Nurse Practitioner – Adj A/Prof Elissa O’Keefe, and Women’s Health Physiotherapist – Tabitha Webb will continue to offer appointments to our patients and continue to provide our excellent services at Junic Specialist Imaging and Women’s Centre, Coombs.

To this end, we have now integrated extra measures to reduce the rate of spread of Covid-19 in line with the government and our professional bodies’ recommendations.

These include;

  • All patients are encouraged to wash their hands or use the hand sanitiser provided before and after appointments.
  • We have facial masks available should you wish to use one.
  • Frequent disinfection of all contact areas – doorknobs, treatments rooms and benchtops.
  • Please maintain the recommended social distancing requirement.
  • You have the option of remaining in your car while waiting to be called in for your appointment.
  • Keeping up to date with Australian government recommendations regarding COVID -19 response
  • At the time of confirmation of your appointment and when you attend, please advise us if
    • You have cold or flu-like symptoms.
    • Have recently returned from overseas travel.
    • You have been diagnosed, or come into contact with someone that has been diagnosed with coronavirus.
    • Have received medical advice that you should remain in quarantine.

Please note that this advice may change and thank you for your continued support as we continue to respond to the changing requirements of the COVID – 19 situations.
