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.

Late Arrival Policy

Patients are allocated a specific appointment time and duration of consultation. We encourage patients to arrive 10 minutes early to their first appointment so that they can complete patient registration forms prior to their consultation (see Your Initial Consultation).

While we will endeavour to accommodate patients who arrive late to their appointment, the duration of your consultation will be reduced by the amount of time that you were late for your appointment. You may be asked to return at a later time or on another day. Your consultation fee will still apply.

Missed Appointment Policy

We require 24 hours notice by phone if you will not be able to attend your scheduled appointment. Appointments that are cancelled or rescheduled with less than 24 hours notice will attract a full consultation fee.
