With the current COVID situation in Victoria, we no longer have a “lockdown” situation regarding seeing patients and operating on them, which is great news for all of my patients.
New patients, and review patients, can now be seen in an office face-to-face consultation. In that situation we are taking all the recommended precautions to ensure everyone’s safety, and this includes still wearing masks whilst in the hospital building, including our office.
For many consultations, both for new patients where the condition is appropriate, and for many follow-up consultations, these will continue to be by Telehealth video or telephone.
I would also encourage all of you to be vaccinated, including the booster dose, as it has been shown, beyond doubt, to reduce the chance of serious illness and hospitalisation. It is the only way we, as a community, can continue to be in some sort of normal situation long-term.
We strongly discourage patients who have not been vaccinated from attending the office.
Holmesglen Private Hospital has no COVID patients and has very strict procedures and protocols to ensure it stays that way.
Pre-operative COVID testing for asymptomatic patients being admitted to hospital electively is no longer required.
