SOCIAL DISTANCING GUIDELINES AT SPECTRUM MEDICAL IMAGING
To comply with the Australian Government and Department of Health social distancing guidelines, effective immediately, Spectrum Medical Imaging will only be able to allow the patient having an imaging procedure performed into our clinic.
We understand that in some cases there are exceptions and we will allow one support person with a patient when:
· A patient requires a carer to assist them
· The patient is a child and must have an adult accompanying them
· A patient is having an obstetric ultrasound scan
Our highest priority is the safety of our patients, our staff and the community at this time to curb the COVID-19 pandemic.
The present situation remains dynamic and will progress in line with Australian Health Department guidelines.
Currently, Spectrum Medical Imaging clinics REMAIN OPEN with our usual operating hours.
