Responding to COVID19
COVID19 UPDATE MAY 2022
SHFPACT is open for face-to-face/in-person consultations with our doctors and nurses, and for counselling services. If you are at high risk for COVID-19 you can request a telehealth consultation.
Some of our services maybe affected by staff shortages due to COVID-19. Thank you for your patience and understanding with this.
KEEPING YOU SAFE
SHFPACT has a current COVID-19 Safety Plan and evidence-based protocols in place to keep both you and our staff safe. These are all regularly updated. As part of this we have strict cleaning protocols where the clinic room you are seen in is cleaned thoroughly after each client.
When you receive a reminder for your appointment you will be asked if you have any symptoms of COVID-19 and asked not to attend for your appointment if you do.
All clients and staff are required to wear a mask while on SHFPACT premises. A mask wll be provided for your use. We also have hand sanitiser available on site.
