As we get closer to the border opening, Glen Forrest Medical Centre would like everyone to consider and plan for possible changes to your regular doctor’s visits.
Whilst we will be open, Telehealth appointments (phone/video) will become a more regular occurrence.
If you (or your doctor!) have any symptoms (cough, cold, fever, sore throat or gastro) a Telehealth appointment will be your first point of contact with your doctor.
If you require a script or request form the doctor will send a digital version to your mobile.
Do you, family members, friends and neighbours have the technology available to do this?
Do you need to have a plan in place for someone who doesn’t?
Another thing to consider is does your usual pharmacy accept electronic scripts and if they do not, find another one that will be able to.
If you have any concerns please discuss with reception or your doctor at your next visit.
