Coronavirus - SafeWA

November 18, 2020

With the re-opening of the Western Australian border, we are all hyper aware that a second wave could very well become a reality for us. It is crucial that we remember our COVID Safe practices to maintain our current COVID free status here in Western Australia 

Dr Patrick Briggs cares about the wellbeing of our patients and staff and we would like to reassure you that we will continue as we always have to keep surfaces clean and will maintain a buffer between you and us where possible during your visit. 

Taking this into account, we would ask that you please consider the health and safety of yourself and our staff when booking appointments. Without our staff, there will not be anyone to see any patients and unfortunately for the healthcare industry, it is not always possible to be able to work from home for a few weeks. Therefore, we ask that: 

If you have undertaken international or interstate travel in the past 14 days, please rebook your routine appointments and initial consultations, such as post-op appointments outside of 3 months post-surgery, initial visits to Dr Briggs to discuss surgical options, non-surgical Botox or Dermal Filler appointments and Medi Spa appointments, until after 14 days of your return to Western Australia. 

If you are unwell or experiencing any sign of fever, sore throat, fatigue, coughing or shortness of breath and you need to be seen for an appointment that you think cannot wait: 

  • Please advise us that you are unwell and stay home.
  • We can talk to you over the phone to discuss whether we think it is a matter of urgency that we see you in the clinic.
  • If we think you need to be seen in the clinic, instructions will be given over the phone prior to your arrival

If you are well and come in to see us, please:

  • Use hand sanitiser upon arriving and leaving the premises
  • Maintain a 1.5 metre distance between you and everyone else.
  • Stand back from the front counter
  • Sit on the chairs in the consult rooms and reception area.
  • If you need to cough or sneeze, please cover your mouth and nose with your elbow and don’t wipe your hands on anything!

We sincerely appreciate your understanding of the above. It is a surreal and constantly evolving situation that we still find ourselves in many months after the initial lockdown. It is time for all of us to be mindful of the risk we pose to others, not just the risk that others may pose to us.  

Thank you 
Dr Patrick Briggs and Team
