Latest news: Masks are mandatory when you attend our practice in person, and we request that you log your attendance via our Victorian Government QR code, by entering location code 3D7RE3 into the Services Victoria App or by writing your details on the physical register at our reception.

Elective surgeries are currently unrestricted and you do not need to have a COVID test prior to hospital admission for elective surgery if you have no COVID symptoms or other risk factors. Dr Tomlinson is operating at The Avenue and Glenferrie Private; Epworth Cliveden is indefinitely closed at this time. 

All suitable consultations at Melbourne Hand Surgery are currently conducted via telehealth at our dedicated virtual clinic to maximise patient and staff safety. We have implemented enhanced hygiene measures in our rooms including acrylic screens, masks, hand sanitiser, face shields and physical distancing-related changes. We require that all patients provide a referral prior to booking an appointment so that we can identify and manage urgent and emergency conditions in a timely manner, and so that our surgeons can assess your suitability for a telehealth appointment and identify any further information or tests that might be required before your consultation.
