**Important News**

 

YOUR HEALTH MATTERS TO US

 

Due to the COVID situation in South Australia, we have moved our method of delivering health care from face to face consultations to that of virtual health care, provided by O'Brien Street practitioners via the options of either telephone or video consultation for all patients who have a current Medicare Card so now you don't have to leave home.

This is with the aim to keep both you as a patient and your healthcare providers free from risk of infection transmission.

If you’re unwell or need to self-isolate, you can still attend a consultation virtually. Telehealth or Video Call consultations are not only convenient, but can also reduce the spread of illness. 

Your GP or Health Professional will go through the normal procedures of asking about your symptoms and assessing potential diagnoses. You can also get your prescriptions for medicine or discuss any general health concerns.

Video consultation will rely on the quality of your internet access and the ability to participate in a consultation by generally using the camera function of your mobile phone.

There may be an occasion where you will need face to face contact with your treating GP or Allied Health provider which will involve attending another location aligned with O'Brien Street Practice.

This can be discussed in consultation with your GP and assessed in terms of clinical urgency and risk if a face to face consultation is required.


For any pathology services ordered by your GP, we will forward your request form to a collection centre that is located close to where you reside.


Please check with the pathology centre when making a booking for any specific instructions; some centres are co-located within a private practice and may have restrictions of entry, especially if not vaccinated for COVID, be mindful that standard restrictions of entry relating to COVID screening will apply to SA Health Care settings. 

 

 HOW TO BOOK A TELEHEALTH APPOINTMENT?

 

Call O’Brien Street Practice during standard opening hours and staff will book your appointment for you. If you have any concerns about this change to the way your healthcare is delivered please ring us to discuss with your GP on 8231 4026.

 COVID-19 Vaccinations COVID 19 Update

 

O'Brien Street Practice will not be taking part in the roll-out program of providing COVID-19 vaccinations. Visit www.health.gov.au 

and follow the prompts to COVID-19 vaccinations for a searchable list of practices in South Australia that will be participating in the program.

 

 

 

Please note that we currently close on Fridays at 1.30 as we have no clinical staff onsite. 

 

 

When paying for your visit in full at the time of consultation, reimbursement of your Medicare rebate can take place using our TYRO machine utilising your debit card.  

 

 

Check in with Reception upon arrival and take the opportunity to update your address, phone and mobile phone details. 

 

 We do not take external new patient referrals for Psychology  services provided at O'Brien Street.

 

 

 

We are currently unable to take any new patients due to a shortage of General Practitioners.

 

 

Our SMS reminder system is interactive. They are sent out from 8.30am the day before your appointment and you are given the option of typing either YES to keep your appointment or NO to cancel. No full stops required- just YES or NO. Trying to send other responses only confuses the reminder system.

If you have elected to receive SMS reminders, you must reply to the message to keep your allocated time.

Failure to attend a booked appointment without response will result in a missed appointment fee. Missed appointment fees are based on time booked and are not claimable through Medicare. Please refer to Fees tab to see these charges. 

 

  Please note that Drugs of Dependence are generally not prescribed in an initial new patient appointment at O'Brien Street- your initial appointment is an assessment by the GP.

 

Dr Mark Fuller  has now closed his books for new patient referrals.

 

We request your assistance in making O'Brien Street Practice a safe place for everybody.

Please help us by maintaining appropriate and respectful behaviour.
