COVID-19 Update

COVID-19 Update

We would like to reassure our clients and their families that Leading Edge is closely monitoring the COVID-19 situation. Please see a brief summary below.

The wellbeing of our people, clients and their families is a priority during this time and we have been monitoring the situation closely, with information from the Australian Government, the World Health Organization and state and territory health authorities, as well as taking industry specific advice from the Australian Physiotherapy Association and Physiotherapy Board of Australia.

On Monday 23rd March The Australian Minister for Health (The Hon Greg Hunt) confirmed that ALL allied health businesses can continue working and are encouraged to do so.

Leading Edge is currently taking the following steps in response to the evolving COVID-19 situation:

  • Our team’s continuation of their usual strict hand hygiene and infection control procedures. Our staff undertake annual Hand Hygiene training as part of their employment.
  • Particular attention is being made to ensure our common spaces are thoroughly cleaned and disinfected regularly.
  • Our treatment spaces (whilst exempt from Government-mandated mass gathering restrictions as a healthcare business) are well over the 4sqm/person limit
  • Monitoring and screening staff travel in line with current travel advice.
  • Providing our staff and clients with information around how to keep up-to-date with the latest advice.

We are working hard to minimise any potential disruption or inconvenience to our clients, and we will be in touch as appropriate. For now, we are OPEN FOR BUSINESS as usual – however we ask that if you (or anyone in your household) have shown any of the signs and symptoms associated with COVID-19 infection that you DO NOT ATTEND your appointment and seek medical attention consistent with the current advice. We will not currently be enforcing any late cancellation fees.

Additionally, with the updated travel advice announced on Sunday 22nd March, anyone entering South Australia will be required to self-isolate for 14 days after your return.  We also ask that you DO NOT ATTEND your appointment during this quarantine period.

If you are unsure whether you should attend your appointment, please call our clinic and our staff can assist you.

Virtual Physio Service

Please note, for clients that cannot attend our clinic in person, we have a fantastic Virtual Physio service available. Delivered via a video consult, we can assess your particular issue and provide relevant, evidence-based exercises to help you in the treatment of your condition using our popular PhysiApp platform. Head to https://virtual.physio to find out more.

Thank you for your co-operation
