“The upgrade is scheduled to begin in June 2020 and has been thoughtfully designed to provide the optimum patient journey for our clients”.
The renovations on the Jane Ardler Centre will be commencing in June 2020. This means, our GP and other health providers will be temporarily located at 1 McGrath Ave Nowra. For any appointments on or after the 18th of May 2020, unless it’s a telephone or telehealth consult, you may be required to attend the new location. Please remember to practice social distancing and if possible, only the person with the booked appointment should attend.
Where do I see my counsellor?
We have also moved our Wellbeing team (Counselling and Case Management services) just up the road from the Jane Ardler Centre to Caledonia House, 59 Berry Street Nowra. Once COVID-19 restrictions ease, you will be able to visit reception on the ground floor for you appointments. In the meantime, we are continuing to conduct telephone appointments, but keep an eye out on our facebook page and website for updates!
Where will the Dental team be located?
Our Oral Health services are also relocating, but not too far. As from the 25th May 2020, we will be located in the Nowra Dental Clinic, located at 9 Lawrence Avenue. We will ask all booked patients to first attend to the reception at Caledonia House (59 Berry Street), 15 mins prior to the scheduled appointment time for checking in and COVID-19 screening, then dental patients will be given the all clear, along with a check-in card, and will then be directed to the Nowra Dental Clinic for the appointment.
Update on the 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. The SCMSAC intend to increase the operating days of both clinics to two days per week each by the 18th May 2020. We are also working closely with the Illawarra Shoalhaven Local Health District and other service providers to increase services to these areas.
We now offer virtual consults at our outreach clinics. See the schedule below.
