ARE YOU COVID POSITIVE ?
GUIDELINES SUGGEST YOU ISOLATE AND MANAGE FROM HOME. Please refer to guidelines here.
Most people who test positive for COVID-19 will likely only experience mild symptoms and recover without requiring special treatment or hospitalization, especially if fully vaccinated.
If you have no symptoms, or your symptoms are mild to moderate, it is usually safe for
you to isolate and manage your symptoms at home. If you are recovering in your home
instead of going to hospital, your care team could include your GP, nurse, Aboriginal and
Torres Strait Islander health practitioner and the local public health unit.
It is normal for COVID-19 symptoms to change over time. Some may have no symptoms and others might have symptoms that become worse over time. This advice is designed to help you understand what to expect when you are
diagnosed with COVID-19, and what to look out for so that you know if your COVID-19
is getting worse.
While isolating at home we recommend:
- staying at home, unless you need to leave to get medical care or if you feel
- living in a separate room away from other people in your house
- ensuring others do not enter your home, unless they are providing necessary
- having groceries and other essential items delivered to your home
- record your symptoms daily using a symptom diary and discuss these with your GP or nurse during your check-ups. You should watch out for worsening symptoms and follow your COVID-19 action plan.
- get plenty of rest, drink lots of water and eat well. You can still do moderate exercise if you feel well enough (within your home and/or garden). Your GP can advise you of any medicines that might be needed to manage your symptoms. Make sure your GP and nurse know exactly what medicines you are taking and advise if your symptoms so worsen.
Come in and chat to our Practice Manager and in-house Pharmacist Therese.
She has in past months moved into the dual role of Practice Pharmacist, complementing her position as Practice manager.
Therese is accredited to conduct medication reviews, so if you have any medication related queries, come in and have a chat.
NEED TO SPEAK TO THE DOCTOR?
We request all patients PHONE AHEAD of attending the surgery and one of our Doctors will advise if you need to attend the surgery for a follow up appointment. We are operating in adherence with social distancing requirements and stepping up our hygiene practices during this time to ensure our patients feel comfortable and looked after.
In the event you need or prefer to come into the surgery for your consultation, follow up, results or scripts, you are more than welcome. We just ask that you advise our staff if you have been unwell with any respiratory symptoms, so alternative arrangements can be made.
You may be asked to come wearing a mask, or wait in your car if the seats in the waiting room are full. This is for the safety of all patients in light of social distancing requirements.
Please call our Surgery to arrange a callback. (02) 9547 1099

During these crazy times, South Hurstville family practice was the only place that would see me. I needed my dressing on my recent surgery wound to be replaced and the wound checked. I had the pleasure of Emma looking after me, she was so comforting and professional and made it a very complete experience. Highly recommended 🙏
I have nothing but praise for the service, friendliness and attention from both receptionists and doctors at South Hurstville Family Practice. Thankyou for the last 20 years and many more to come.
An amazing surgery honestly one of the best GPs I've ever had in my life!
The individualised care this practice offers is second to none. Person centred communication, attention to detail, range of services, thorough assessment and investigative referral processes ensure optimum outcomes in medical care. I have been attending this practice for over thirty years, and highly recommend it.
