TeleHealth @ Pear Tree
All consultations with Pear Tree will now be via Telehealth (telephone) rather than face-to-face. We have made this decision to maintain patient safety and the sustainability of our service.
We are mindful that this will be a challenging time for many in our local community and we will BULK-BILL all eligible telehealth consultations during this emergency. Each consultation will be for one problem only to allow equitable access.

We have just received our first delivery of Government Flu vaccines. We have vaccines for 65+ years and medically at risk between 5 and 65 years. We will keep you informed of availability for <5 years old when we receive them.
Due to COVID-19 we ask you park in the Cheap as Chips carpark and await our call to review your history. Bridget King RN will administer your vaccination in full personal protective equipment in our courtyard to assure your safety.

It’s now Autumn and flu season is around the corner. The flu vaccine provides best protection in the 3-4 months after it is given. Time your flu vaccine from April to ensure you are best protected in the peak flu season of June to September. We will keep you updated on the 2020 Flu vaccination program.
