Cordium is committed to provide regular updates to our team during this time and the purpose of this page is to keep our team of doctors and staff members informed.

Appointment Booking at Reception:

Face to face:
NSNCFV - No symptoms, no contact (casual or close), fully vaccinated.
Travel is irrelevant now as borders are open, if they are in QLD and not under isolation and do not have symptoms they can be booked in.

Telehealth first and doctor to advice patients:

  • anyone who has symptoms - ONLY for these patients
  • anyone who is not fully vaccinated (for clinics not seeing UV patients)
  • anyone who cannot wear a mask
  • anyone who is a known contact, casual or close.

Current PPE Requirements

Face Masks:
All clinical staff (doctors and nurses) to wear P2/N95 masks that have been fit tested.
All non-clinical staff (managers and reception) to wear surgical mask

Eye Protection
Eye protection is recommended but not mandatory, if a staff member wishes to use goggles or a face shield, they can.

Face shields and goggles are able to be re-worn. Please see Useful Links for further instructions.

Covid-19 Vaccines Information

We are pleased to announce that all our practices have been approved to provide Covid-19 vaccines.


Close contact rules are changing

From 28/04/2022 reception will need to ask 2 screening questions:

  1. Questions about symptoms (same as currently what we are doing)
  2. Have you been a close contact for last 7 days?

If answer to any of them is yes, our preference is telehealth first and then doctor decides.

'Up to Date'
