COVID-19

Dr Karynne Finniear
Mind and Body Medicine

We have had to make some changes to how we see patients due to the current Global COVID19 Pandemic.
As of Monday 6 April 2020 Dr Karynne Finniear is available to treat her GP and Mental Health Patients via Telehealth. This allows for you to have your appointments with Dr Finniear scheduled at a time that is convenient for you in the comfort of your own home.
All bookings for appointments are by Telephone or Online and we will call you at the scheduled time for your appointment. If you need to change your appointment for any reason you can simply telephone us here at Mind and Body Medicine and we will reschedule your appointment at a new time and date.
We ask that you give us 24 hours notice of a cancellation of an appointment so that we can offer your allocated appointment to another patient who is on our waiting list.

How do I book an appointment?
Appointments are booked at a time and date just as with face to face appointments.

What do I do if I need a repeat on my prescriptions?
During your Telehealth appointment with Dr Finniear you are able to request a new prescription. Dr Finniear will offer you two options for getting your prescriptiuon:

Option One
This option offers you a new prescription that you can to pick up from the Reception desk at Mind and Body Medicine later that day.

Option Two
Alternatively if it is more convenient for you we can arrange to Fax or email your prescription through to the Chemist of your choosing. You are then able to go directly to your local Pharmacy to pick up your medications.

How do I get my Medications if I am unable to leave my home due to COVID 19 infection or Age or health related reasons to self-isolate at home?
Some local Pharmacies are offering free deliveries for medications when you are required to stay in home isolation. Ask your local Pharmacy if they offer this service to deliver directly to your home.

Electronic Prescribing
The Federal Government has advised Medical Practitioners that Electronic Prescribing(ePrescribing) will be available within a few weeks. With Electronic Prescriptions the prescription is sent electronically to your Pharmacy without you needing to obtain a paper copy from your Doctor.
Mind and Body Medicine will keep you updated when this EPrescribing becomes available.
You will still need to have a Telehealth or Face to Face appointment with your Doctor to obtain your prescription but you will not require a paper copy of this.

Monday 8am to 4pm
Tuesday 8am to 4pm
Wednesday 8am to 1pm
