MEDSANA COVID-19 PLAN

Ensuring the safety of our patients, practitioners & staff

Our Key Covid-19 Points

Masks Required

Masks are to be worn at all times.

In Car Appointments

Patients with Covid-19 symptoms regardless of vaccination status and Covid PCR swab results will need to be seen in the car park. Call reception for further instructions.

Rapid Antigen Testing

Your visit to Medsana may require a Roche Rapid Antigen test ($50) just prior to your scheduled appointment time.

The test takes between 15-30mins and will be conducted in the carpark. This requirement may apply to procedures or visits that take longer than 15mins and in the context of heightened risk. The cost for the Rapid Antigen Test will be privately charged and will be additional to the consultation or procedure cost. Your home Rapid Antigen Test is not a suitable substitute. Our friendly receptionists will give support and guidance.
