Update on our service delivery

To ensure the safety of our staff, our kids and our community, we are undertaking precautionary measures to contain and control the spread of COVID-19 (coronavirus), under the guidelines of the NSW Public Health Unit.

The situation can change quickly, so to stay up to date with the latest information about the spread of COVID-19 and the steps being taken to slow the spread, visit the Department of Health website.

GP & health-related services
Our GP and other health providers are temporarily located at 1 McGrath Ave Nowra, across the road from Harry Sawkins Park.

Wellbeing Services
Our Wellbeing team (Counselling and Case Management services) are also settled into their new location Caledonia House, 59 Berry Street Nowra just up the road from the Jane Ardler Centre. Once COVID-19 restrictions ease, you will be able to visit reception on the ground floor for your appointments. In the meantime, we are continuing to conduct telephone appointments, but keep an eye out on our Facebook page for updates.

Dental Health Services
Our Oral Health services have also begun operating from their temporary location in the Nowra Dental Clinic, located at Nowra Dental Clinic, located at 9 Lawrence Avenue. We now ask all booked patients to first attend to the reception at  Caledonia House (59 Berry Street), 15 minutes prior to the scheduled appointment time for checking in and COVID-19 screening. Once patients are given the all-clear and their check-in card, they are then directed to the Nowra Dental Clinic for their appointment.

We have also reopened our walk-in Dental Clinic each Friday from 9:00 am – 3:00 pm. People who are in pain, have swelling or bleeding, or have experienced acute trauma to the teeth/gums may attend the Friday walk-in Clinic. Patients will be triaged strictly according to the above criteria and availability is limited, so we encourage patients to book regular appointments in advance.

Outreach clinics
The outreach clinics in Wreck Bay and Jerrinja remain open during this time. We have installed Telehealth facilities in each clinic to support access to GP’s and other health providers. Both clinics are open two days per week for virtual consults. See the schedule below.

We are also working closely with the Illawarra Shoalhaven Local Health District and other service providers to increase services to these areas.

Wreck Bay clinic
Mondays
from 10:00am to 3:00pm

Jerrinja clinic
Tuesdays  & 1 Friday per month
from 10:00am to 3:00pm

Effective from May 2020 until further notice.

Please be assured that we are continuing to implement appropriate safety measures as advised by the NSW Public Health Unit. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.

Our team thanks you for your patience and cooperation, and is here to discuss any concerns or questions you may have.
