Avondale Health Centre – Professional Healthcare in a Friendly Environment


IMPORTANT UPDATES FOR LOCKDOWN PERIOD

From 11.59pm 25/03/2020 the country will go into lockdown (Covid-19 Alert Level 4). This lockdown will last for a minimum of 4 weeks.
Because of this, all bookings are phone appointments onlyđź“ž
You can book phone consultation appointments with your own doctor. If your doctor is unavailable, the roster doctor will call you back. A phone consultation may be able to give you all the help you need, but if not the doctor can book you in for a longer phone consultation or arrange for you to physically come into the practice. This includes Covid 19 testing if necessary.
 
To book an appointment please phone 828 2066 to speak with one of our receptionists. As some of our phones are now diverted to staff working remotely, if your call is not answered please phone again.
You may order prescriptions, view test results and book appointments via our patient portal. If you are not registered for this service, please contact reception on 8282066.

Important information Influenza Vaccine 2020

To separate those needing flu vaccine from the general unwell population, Avondale Health Centre is holding special vaccination clinics for patients who qualify for a free vaccine.
Patients who are eligible for a FREE influenza vaccination are people aged 65 and over, pregnant women, those with certain chronic conditions and young children with a history of severe respiratory illness.
Details of these special vaccination clinics will be sent by text message as they are confirmed. If you are one of the above priority patients who can’t receive text messages, please call reception to make an appointment.
If you are booked into the next special vaccination clinic, please report to our staff outside the
clinic on arrival. To protect you from illness and allow enough social distance, they will ask you to
stay in your car until invited inside our Layard St practice for your vaccination.
If you don’t qualify for a free flu vaccination, please wait until after 13th April 2020 to get vaccinated.
