Latest news: Masks are and will remain mandatory when you attend our practice in person. We require that you log your attendance via our Victorian Government QR code (location code 3D7RE3 in the Service Victoria App) or by writing your details on the physical register at our reception. 

In accordance with the current COVID peak (black) status consultations are now being preferentially conducted via videoconference, with in person consultations by exception. All individuals undergoing elective surgery are required to obtain a negative COVID test within 72 hours of their scheduled surgery and must self-isolate from the time of their test until their hospital admission.  Dr Tomlinson is operating at The Avenue and Glenferrie Private; elective surgery is limited to 50% of normal volume. We are currently experiencing critical administrative staff shortages and we are changing our service delivery models to manage this. 

Videoconsultations are conducted via our dedicated virtual clinic to maximise patient and staff safety. COVIDsafe measures in our rooms include acrylic screens, masks, hand sanitiser, face shields and physical distancing-related changes; long consultations and our See and Treat service remain 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 we can identify and manage urgent and emergency conditions 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.       If you are eligible to get vaccinated, please do so.
