As a valued patient or carer, we would like to personally update you on COVID information as it relates to Philip Wood Physiotherapy.

Both our Riverstone and Stanhope Practices have resumed full operations.

Our first priority is the general health and wellbeing of the community. The COVID-19 pandemic places an added level of complexity and concern for patient care and we ask for your patience and understanding as we navigate changing Government advice. As a health care provider, our staff are fully vaccinated and we place emphasis on upholding stringent standards of hygiene and infection control. Please speak to one of our staff if you would like to know more about how we keep you safe.

We request that if you are experiencing any cold/flu-like symptoms which may include fever, cough, sore throat, fatigue or shortness of breath; that you DO NOT attend the practice. We also ask that you wear a mask to your appointment to protect our vulnerable patients.

We respect everyone’s right to make independent health care decisions and therefore, there is no requirement for patients at this practice to be vaccinated. We hope you understand however that in order to respect everyone’s right to choose what is right for their family, it is important for us to understand the vaccination status of each patient.

If for any reason you feel uncomfortable attending in person, we have increased our capacity for home visit consultations and telehealth consultations. We thank you very much for your understanding during this difficult time.
