COVID-19 Information for Patients
Macquarie Respiratory and Sleep is supporting efforts to slow community transmission of Coronavirus (COVID-19) and is following advice of the Australian Government and NSW Health. We are committed to the safety and wellbeing of our patients, staff, and visitors.
We have appropriate infection prevention and control protocols in place to minimise the risk of any infection, including COVID-19.
Please DO NOT enter the hospital or clinic building if you:
- have been to a COVID-19 hotspot
- have fever, cough, or dyspnoea (breathing difficulty)
- have experienced cold or flu-like symptoms
- have been in contact with somebody with COVID-19
Where appropriate, our clinicians are utilising Telehealth services for some new and follow up consultations. This may be a video or telephone consultation. Please contact our clinic to find out if this is a suitable option for you.
Patients, visitors, and staff will be temperature checked each day they attend the Macquarie University Hospital and MQ Health Clinic buildings. There are temperature checks and hand sanitiser stations in the following locations:
- Hospital ground floor
- Hospital car park – B1
- Clinic ground floor
- Clinic car park – B1
Social distancing in clinic
Macquarie Respiratory and Sleep has implemented several social distancing measures to ensure the safety of our patients and staff. This includes placing a limit on the number of people permitted in the clinic waiting room. We ask you to consider not visiting the clinic or accompany patients to appointments in the clinic unless you are an immediate family member or carer of the patient.
