There has been a significant disruption to services throughout the health sector over the past YEAR. Fortunately, the shutdown of services and social distancing guidelines have brought the Coronavirus pandemic under control. You may have questions about what services are now active.
For private and compensable (workcover/CTP) patients:
All elective orthopaedic surgery in the private hospital system is going ahead. If you have any COVID-19 symptoms, your surgery may be postponed on the day.
For public patients already on a waiting list for surgery:
Elective surgery is back at usual capacity. However there has been an increase in waiting times due to the shutdown. Please continue to be patient during this time. If you have questions about your place on the waiting list please contact your relevant hospital for further updates.
For all trauma patients:
Trauma surgery is continuing without disruption. If you have sustained a recent fracture please ask for an urgent appointment.
We continue to see all patients and can book your surgery at the appropriate hospital. We continue to follow all social distancing guidelines in our practice. If you have any further questions, please contact our office.
