Meet the team

Business as usual from today. Thank you Firies.

It’s business as usual by appointment for our Moruya and Broulee practices from today –  13 January.

We are anticipating a higher than usual phone call load this week so if you are in the queue on the phone press 2 for an auto-call back – you won’t loose your place in the queue. Remember you can also book appointments and order most scripts on line so do give this a try. 

Sincere thanks to our practice team who have done their very best to keep the practice up and running whenever we could safely open during these days of crisis. 

We pay tribute to all our brave and couragious RFS firefighters – their support teams and families, our emergency services and the army of volunteers helping our community and wildlife – our heartfelt thanks to you all.

Open until midday tomorrow – 10 Jan

Our practice will be open tomorrow morning from 8.00 am until 12.00 pm for appointments and walk-in services.

The practice is closing at midday due to the anticipated fire threat to Moruya and region due to deteriorating weather conditions forecast. Patients with afternoon appointments on 10 Jan will be sent an SMS message to please phone the practice to re-schedule their appointment.

We plan to open for “business as usual” from Monday 13 Jan at our Moruya and Broulee practices and will issue any updates as required. Also stay tuned for Radio ABC South-East for updates about our practice.

 

Open for appointments and walk-in services

Our practice is open for patients with appointments and we are offering walk-in medical services – our doctors will endeavour to see all who require medical attention on a priority (triage) sit and wait basis.

Our Broulee practice will remain closed until further notice and the phone is diverted to our Moruya practice. We cannot offer any immunisations due to the power outages as the vaccines cannot be stored without refrigeration. Our thoughts and wishes remain with you all – please remain alert to bushfire conditions near you. 

Message to our staff and doctors: Your safety is our utmost priority – do not attend work unless it is safe to do so.

Walk-In service 2 and 3 Jan 2020

Due to the bushfires our practice will offer limited, walk-in services only on 2 and 3 Jan 2020. The practice is without power and IT and many of our team are unable to work due to the distaster situation.

Doctors will strive to see anyone who requires attention on a WALK IN basis only. There will be NO appointments and we cannot advise on waiting times. Patients will be triaged and seen on a priority basis.

We will continue to monitor the situation during the coming days and issue advice when possible. Please understand the practice may have to close without warning due to the fires and road closures.

Queen Street Medical Centre Broulee will be closed 2 and 3 January.

Message to our staff and doctors: Please attend work only when it is safe for you to do so. The safety of you and your family is paramount and our thoughts and wishes are with you.

Limited services today

Dear patients, due to the bushfire emergency across our region our Moruya practice is running limited services today, 31 December. Please phone the practice before you come in as many of our doctors and staff are protecting property or evacuating. We are also experiencing power blackouts and may close the practice at any time. 

Ensure you remain alert to all fire warnings and road closures – listen to radio ABC South East and also see important links in the previous news post – above all stay safe.

Our Broulee practice is closed due to the fire emergency.

Bushfires – watch, act, stay safe

NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian has declared a state of emergency across the state for the next seven days. Your safety and welfare is on our minds and we extend our wishes to everyone affected by these devastating bushfires.
