With the current COVID situation in Victoria, where we now have very few COVID restrictions, it has made it much simpler to treat my patients in a timely manner.
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 can 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 some COVID patients, from time-to-time and has very strict procedures and protocols to ensure the safety of other patients, staff and visitors.
Pre-operative COVID testing for asymptomatic patients being admitted to hospital electively is no longer required.
