Contagious Symptoms

If you have tested positive for Covid you should not enter any BGP locations. Please book a telehealth appointment with your regular GP.

If you have tested negative to Covid but are experiencing cough, cold, flu or any other contagious symptoms please inform staff at the time of your booking. When you arrive for your appointment we ask that you please remain in your vehicle, phone to let us know you have arrived or use self check in via the HotDoc app. Your GP will call you when it’s time to come inside. Ensure a mask is worn when on-site to prevent the spreading of infection.

The health and safety of our patients & staff is our top priority!
