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 – updated 25/11/20

As recommended by SA Health due to the Parafield cluster, all patients are requested to:

Wear a mask when you enter the practice

Stay in your car when you arrive for your appointment and call the clinic – 83962522 for further instructions.

If you don’t have a mask, give us a call to discuss.  We will discuss with you the best way we can help you or the most appropriate location for our doctors to provide  you with medical assistance.

These measures ensure our clinic is kept as a clean space for vulnerable patients and that we minimize the spread of infectious diseases in our community.

Resumption of Normal Operating Hours

With commencement of daylight saving, we have resumed our normal operating hours.

Monday to Thursday 8.30am -7pm

Friday 8.30am – 6pm

Saturday 8.30 – 12 noon.

Thank you for your patience with all the changes due to Covid.

Established in 1994, Pioneer Medical Centre is a privately owned general practice, delivering personalised comprehensive care to patients of all ages.
