CLICK HERE TO CHECK IN AT OUR VIRTUAL (telehealth) CLINICopenforbusiness

Latest news: Elective hospital surgeries are now unrestricted and we have options to book prior to Christmas. You no longer need to have a COVID test prior to hospital admission. Dr Tomlinson is operating at The Avenue and Glenferrie Private; Epworth Cliveden is indefinitely closed at this time. Our office will be closed from 21 December 2020 to 10 January 2021 inclusive. 

We consult with patients via videoconsultation where it is clinically appropriate to do to maximise patient and staff safety under the new COVID normal. Enhanced hygiene measures in our rooms include acrylic screens, masks, hand sanitiser, face shields and physical distancing-related changes; long (48 minute) consultations and our See and Treat service have been adjusted under our COVIDsafe plan to include the use of telehealth to reduce face to face time. We require that all patients provide a referral prior to booking an appointment so that urgent and emergency conditions can be identified and managed in a timely manner and so that Dr Tomlinson can assess your suitability for a telehealth appointment and identify any further information or investigations that might be required before your consultation. 

Victorians are in this together and together we will get through this. Thank you for your understanding as our community works through these unprecedented times together (last updated: 24 November 2020).
