Dear Patients,

This is to inform you that we are continuing with our cardiac care and appointments.

Following the COVID-19 outbreak, please seek medical attention if you have a cough, sore throat, or other respiratory problems:

Within 14 days of travel
Following contact with someone with COVID-19
Please reschedule appointment at Canberra Heart Rhythm if you have any of the above.

This is to protect our staff and other patients from contracting the virus.

To reduce the need of coming into the practice for appointments, A/Prof. Pathak is offering Phone Consultations and Teleconference appointments for patients in need of immediate service if you are self-isolating or are sick or are at high risk for COVID-19 or from coast.

In the meantime, for all other patients attending in for appointments:

Please ensure that you only bring ONE designated support person with you if you NEED to.
Please do not bring extra friends + family to reduce number of people in the practice
Please maintain proper handwashing and sanitise upon walking into the clinic
Please do not lean on surfaces
Please sit within the social distancing parameters from the other patients inside the practice
Please do not arrive to your appointment early to reduce the crowd inside
