Masks are and will remain mandatory when you attend our practice in person. Please check in when you attend our premises 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 being preferentially conducted via videoconference, with in person consultations by exception. Hospital elective surgery is restricted to urgent (category 1) and emergency surgery.
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. We are currently booking routine, non-urgent new patient appointments seven months ahead. If you are eligible to get vaccinated and/or boosted, please do so.
