openforbusinessCoronavirus update: Dr Tomlinson is on sabbatical leave until the end of June and is therefore not currently accepting urgent referrals. Nurse Beth continues to provide ear molding services on Mondays and Tuesdays. We currently anticipate a return to full elective surgery services from 31 July, in line with Victorian Government directives on the staged recommencement of elective surgery. Out of an abundance of caution we will apply the same approach to the recommencement of elective rooms procedures. 

To protect our patients and staff we have moved all patients to telehealth (phone or video) consultations, except for ear molding consultations and circumstances where we have previously confirmed the requirement for an in-person physical examination, wound care or procedure. Thank you for your understanding as our community works through these unprecedented and rapidly evolving times together (last updated: 20 May 2020).
