The ‘New Normal’ at Adelaide Plastic Surgery 2021
Effective Wednesday 28th July, 2021
As a practice, our priority is to provide safe and appropriate health care for our patients. Although restrictions in South Australia have eased, we continue to monitor expert guidelines regarding the Covid-19 virus and are continually adapting our practices accordingly.
As of Wednesday 28th July, Adelaide Plastic Surgery will open again for all services, including laser, injecting and cosmetic surgery.
Our team is doing their best to contact all patients whose appointments or surgeries were cancelled during the most recent lockdown, and we once again thank you for your continued patience and understanding.
Coming to your appointment
We have introduced some additional protection measures for your safety when visiting us. At this stage, masks will remain mandatory in all healthcare settings so we ask that you please remember to bring your own to your appointment.
We ask that you continue to please make use of the hand sanitising stations set up throughout the practice, exercise safe social distancing from others and avoid paying with cash when possible. All patients must ‘check in’ using the QR codes available on entry, or alternatively sign in using the form at front reception. Our waiting room is still not operating at full capacity (in line with the current communication from the South Australian Government), so we ask that where possible you please come to your appointment alone or with one person only.
When not to come to the practice
For your safety and the safety of our patients and staff, we ask that you please do not attend the practice and reschedule your appointment if:
- You have been to any of the COVID-19 exposure sites listed on the SA Health website
- You have had contact with someone diagnosed or suspected to have COVID-19
- You are feeling unwell or are experiencing any COVID-19 symptoms
If any of the above points apply to you, please reschedule your appointment and follow the appropriate guidelines on the SA Health website. A link to the current listed exposure sites can be found here. Please ensure you are checking this regularly as they are continually changing.
If you are unsure if this applies to you please contact our helpful administrative staff on (08) 8213 1800 who will be happy to answer any further questions.
We find ourselves in an uncertain climate where travel restrictions are constantly changing. For this reason we ask that you please check latest travel advice and Covid-19 hotspots prior to your appointment, as well as the current cross boarder guidelines from the South Australian Government. It is your responsibility to arrange any mandatory entry permits and/or be aware of any testing and quarantine requirements upon entry to South Australia.
In line with the recommendations of the Australian Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, we ask that patients please allow a minimum of 2 weeks before and after the Covid-19 vaccination for any dermal filler appointments with our injecting nurses.
For any questions please contact our administrative staff on (08) 8213 1800 for further information.
