We are changing with the times

Our aim in this stressful time is to continue to provide the best possible service to our patients, while looking after the safety of our staff and vulnerable patients.

Under the current Medicare initiative, we encourage all patients to book phone consults. If your medical matter requires a face to face consult, your doctor will determine this during your phone consult.

Please stay well and observe the “stop the spread” campaign of social distancing, good hand hygiene and cough etiquette.

Your health management

With everything that is changing in the world currently, it is important to have your routine health issues addressed.  If you have a new health issue or if you are due for a routine health check, please do not delay getting medical attention because you feel we are “too busy” or there are “too many sick people” at the practice.

Our aim is to keep our patients well.

Changes to Protect You – New Covid Direction 1/12/20

From 1/12/2020, all patients, visitors and staff (over the age of 12) attending Pioneer Medical Centre must wear a face mask.  Even if you are collecting something, coming for a blood test or seeing the podiatrist, you will need to wear the correct mask.

As well as masks, all patients must sign in on arrival using SA Gov QR code.  QR codes are located around the practice entrances so look for one and start checking in while you wait to be called.  You can download the app via your phone and set up prior to attending for easier access – search for “my SA GOV” app in your app store.  You will need this for entry into any healthcare setting from now on including chemists, physios etc.

These are mandatory requirements by SA Government.   These measures will also protect our patients, doctors and staff and ensure our clinic is a safe environment for vulnerable patients and minimize the spread of infectious diseases in our community.

If you are unable to comply, don’t have a mask or have difficulty with the QR code, please return to your car and ring our staff on 83962522 – we will here to help.

When you attend the practice for your medical appointment, remain in your car and call the clinic – 83962522 – for further instructions.

Thank you for helping us with these important preventative measures.

Pioneer Medical Centre is a COVID-19 Vaccine clinic for the Astra Zeneca vaccine. We hope to start vaccinating in the next week and as the below information suggests this will be only to those >50yrs old who are currently eligible to receive the vaccine.[Update from Federal Government on COVID-19 AstraZeneca Vaccine]Following a review of the use of the COVID-19 AstraZeneca vaccine by Australian Technical Advisory Group on Immunisation (ATAGI) and the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA), the following recommendations have been made and accepted by the Australian Government:▪ the COVID-19 Pfizer vaccine is preferred over the AstraZeneca vaccine for adults aged under 50 years, based on the increasing risk of severe outcomes from COVID-19 in older adults, and a potentially increased risk of “thrombosis with thrombocytopenia” following AstraZeneca vaccination among those aged under 50.▪ AstraZeneca vaccine can be used in adults aged under 50 where the benefits clearly outweigh the risk for that individual and the person has made an informed decision based on an understanding of the risks and benefits.▪ people who have had the first dose of the AstraZeneca vaccine without any serious adverse effects can be given the second dose, including adults under 50 years.SA Health will work closely with the Australian Government to work through the implications for the vaccine rollout program as an urgent priority. In some cases, people who have already booked in for an appointment will need to be provided with a different vaccine. As some clinic only provides one type of vaccine, this may result in a delay in vaccination.Further information, including FAQs, will be available soon.[Advice from ATAGI]ATAGI has very carefully considered the latest vaccination findings out of Europe and the UK – which follow extremely rare instances of people, having taken the AstraZeneca vaccine, developing a very specific syndrome involving blood clots with low platelet counts. The syndrome is called “thrombosis with thrombocytopenia”.The experience in Europe is that approximately one in every 250,000 people vaccinated with AstraZeneca is diagnosed with the rare blood clots. One person in Australia developed the syndrome after receiving the AstraZeneca vaccine.It is important to note the AstraZeneca vaccine remains highly effective at preventing death and severe illness among people who have contracted COVID-19 – and that the incidence of the blood-clotting syndrome is very rare.Read the statement from ATAGI and the Department of Health Secretary and the Chief Medical Officer here:[National COVID-19 Vaccine Symptom Checker]Use the COVID-19 vaccine side effects symptom checker if you have concerns about any symptoms after having either of the COVID-19 vaccines:, you can call the National COVID-19 Vaccine Helpline on 1800 020 080. ...
