For Coast Imaging the health and well-being of our patients, staff and the wider community are our highest priority. All of our centres are open and as state-of-the-art medical facilities, we always observe the highest infection control standards.
We have implemented additional precautions with enhanced disinfection and sterilisation processes. All staff and patients have access to personal protective equipment (PPE) and we have introduced mandatory wellness and travel screening criteria as defined by the Health Department.
With the assistance of Sonic Healthcare, Hunter Imaging Group is well resourced and will remain up to date with the latest developments, ensuring we follow all Health Department guidelines and directives as they evolve.
The following criteria (as at 19 March 2020) will require self-isolation for a period of 14 days:
