openforbusinessCOVID news: Elective surgery restrictions have been lifted and we will resume all elective surgeries from 28 September. Please note that all patients who are scheduled for elective surgery admission are required to undertake a COVID test, to obtain a negative ("not infected") result prior to admission, and to self-isolate from the time of test to admission. As Epworth Cliveden remains indefinitely closed Dr Tomlinson does not have Epworth operating lists at this time, but her operating lists at The Avenue and Glenferrie continue. 

DrTomlinsonvideoconsultationWe are seeing patients via videoconsultation where it is clinically appropriate to do to maximise the patient and staff safety under the new COVID normal. Enhanced hygiene meaures 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.

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: 22 September 2020).
