Proof of COVID-19 vaccination status will be required to ensure we take the necessary measures to protect our staff and patients.
If you have any COVID-19 symptoms you must undertake a COVID-19 PCR test and receive a negative result within 48 - 72 hours prior to your appointment. You will be required to provide evidence of a negative test prior to / at their appointment
If you have symptoms of COVID-19 and have not undertaken a COVID-19 PCR test prior to your appointment you will have your appointment / surgery cancelled.
For surgery at any Adelaide private hospital, you may be required to undertake a RAT on day of admission at the hospital concerned.
Patients from interstate need to follow the SAPOL COVID Directives - https://www.covid-19.sa.gov.au/travel/entrycheck-sa and be aware that all hospitals have their own admission requirements which may differ to SA Health advice.
