COVID-19 CLINIC IMPACT-updated March 23rd 2020
The impact of Covid-19 on our business, like so many others has been immediate.
We would like to assure our patients that our focus on hygiene is even greater than ever, and all visitors are screened prior to and on arrival at our clinic and required to use hand sanitiser and sign a declaration of good health. Our appointments are widely spaced to enable frequent sterilisation. Our doctor has viral filter masks which will be worn during all face to face patient appointments. Patients are asked to bring their own pen and drink bottle. We will continue consulting face to face as long as possible.
We are especially excited to move our medical focus to a new area of immediate need in the community..providing a safe wellness haven for routine vaccinations for those who might wish to avoid other medical clinics at this time. Our primary focus will be on influenza vaccinations initially, and we also plan to have vaccines for babies, children and the over 65s too.
We can even provide a mobile vaccination service for those who are unable or unwilling to leave their home at this time. As long as you are not in quarantine or compulsory isolation, you can request a home visit flu shot. This is a private service and will be billed accordingly. Compulsory temperature checks will be necessary prior to all vaccinations, whether in clinic or home based.
For our regular acne patients, access to LED services will continue throughout this period, sterilised after each use, of course. Review consultations will now take place via teleconferencing. Please ensure that you have the Zoom app installed on your phone or desktop. Scripts and skincare products can be ordered via email or phone, and will be posted out.
Dr Teska is also an approved Medicare provider of Mental Health Care Plans, and can provide teleconsultations for anyone in need during this crisis. Our area of special interest extends to Adolescent Mental Health and we would love to offer support to any youth going through difficulties at this time.
Our hours of operation are changing by the end of March. Please phone ahead if unsure.
We will be open Tuesday to Thursday from March 30th onwards, and teleconferencing on Fridays. That means, no more Saturday appointments for the next 4 months.
Skin Temple will go on to provide a comprehensive medical service once this crisis abates, with 7 different lasers, LED, Ultherapy and a complete range of injectables, including leg vein sclerotherapy. However, these cosmetic non-essential services will be temporily suspended whilst we turn our focus to the more pressing vaccination needs of our community this autumn/winter. Thank you for understanding.
