1/12/20 COVID safe requirements
To ensure patient safety, we will be holding all consultations initially by Telehealth. As per the SA Health Directive, face to face appointments, if needed, will be performed with PPE. All staff, patients and visitors are required to wear a surgical mask while on our premises. You may bring your own, or purchase from us for $1 + GST. SA Health have declared cloth masks insufficient for the health care setting.
We are also required to record the contact details of all persons who attend Pear Tree.
We encourage anyone with cold or flu symptoms, diarrhoea, fever, loss of smell or taste to get a COVID test and isolate at home. Find your closest test site here.
UPDATE ON TELEHEALTH FROM PEAR TREE. As of the 1st of October all TeleHealth consultations will incur a private fee, the same as face-to-face consultations. For all Tele-Health booked online, you will be asked to provide your card details for payment, for appointments booked via phone our friendly receptionists will take pre-payment. After your appointment all payments will be processed to medicare and your rebate will come back to you via your nominated bank account (usually within 2-48 hours).
As with previous Tele-Health to be eligible for the Medicare Rebate you MUST have seen a GP face-to-face in the clinic in the previous 12 months, exception of children under 12 months of age. If you do not meet this criteria for TeleHealth, you will incur a full fee, and no Medicare rebate will apply.
