Since February 2020, we have been extremely busy helping GP practices in the East Coast starting in Epping and West Ryde with a COVID-19 Response.
At the time, this had stretched our resources. The upside is we have now produced a free peer-reviewed self-assessment checklist and a practical troubleshooting guide for your Practice.

Based on our 28 years of national experience and your input over the years, we have addressed the problem. This practical guide is for owners, staff and patients to reduce any immediate concerns.
The checklist is being updated daily due to rule changes.
