Covid 19: Booking appointments when you have respiratory symptoms.

The following symptoms are consistent with COVID-19:

Clinical criteria

Assess for COVID-19 symptoms
Do you have any of the following symptoms:

New or worsening: Cough?


Sneezing and runny nose?

New loss or altered sense of smell/taste? Sore throat?

Do you have a fever?
NB: Less common symptoms almost always occur with one or more of the common symptoms, so you don’t need to screen
specifically for less common symptoms. However, have a high degree of suspicion if people mention any less common
symptoms (new diarrhoea/vomiting or abdominal pain, new muscle aches or headache, malaise, chest pain, joint pain or
confusion/irritability), with no other explanation.

Assess whether a person could have COVID-19 or has exposure risk for COVID-19:

Have you tested positive in the last 10 days for COVID-19 infection?
• Are you awaiting the result of a COVID-19 test because you had COVID symptoms?
• Have you had close contact in the last 10 days with someone who has COVID-19
• Have you been notified in last 10 days that you have been exposed to someone with
COVID-19 and been asked to stay at home and isolate?
• Have you returned from overseas in the last 10 days? (excluding from a Quarantinefree travel zone)
If unable to obtain a contact or exposure history, assume that the patient has exposure risk.


Please phone ahead with any questions and to book appointments. You may be offered a telephone consultation if appropriate. We are trying to minimise all respiratory illnesses in the Surgery to protect patients and staff. 

We are screening every patient for symptoms at the time of making an appointment and on arrival to the Surgery.

Be kind, stay safe and remember we are here if you need us.
