In accordance with the current COVID peak (black) status consultations are now being conducted via videoconference, with in person consultations by exception. All individuals undergoing elective surgery are required to obtain a negative COVID test within 72 hours of their scheduled surgery and must self-isolate from the time of their test until their hospital admission. Dr Tomlinson is operating at The Avenue and Glenferrie Private; Epworth Cliveden has closed. We are currently experiencing critical administrative staff shortages and we are changing our service delivery models to manage this. Our offices are currently closed on Friday.
Videoconsultations are conducted via telehealth at our dedicated virtual clinic to maximise patient and staff safety. For in person consultations we have 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. If you are eligible to get vaccinated, please do so.
