When making an appointment to see one of our Doctors, please ensure that you let the reception team know, if you have recently returned from China or have been in recent contact with someone who has recently returned from China. This allows us to isolate you from the waiting room and provide appropriate care for all our patients.
The Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) may cause supply interruptions of some medications. Doctors on Darling recommend that you ensure that you have current prescriptions for all regular medications. It is suggested that you have at least 1-3 months supply on hand.
Tips for coping with coronavirus anxiety
As the number of coronavirus cases rise across Australia, the level of anxiety within the community is increasing.
Feelings of worry and unease can be expected following a stressful event, such as the recent declaration of a global pandemic, however, it is important that we learn to manage our stress before it turns to more severe anxiety and panic.
The Australian Psychological Society has prepared this guide for Australians, outlining some useful strategies which can help both adults and children cope with the stress or anxiety experienced as a result of the coronavirus outbreak.
