COVID-19 statement March 2020

If you suspect you may have the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) call the dedicated hotline – open 24 hours, 7 days 1800 675 398

By now we all know what COVID-19 is and we all know what social distancing is.

Things have escalated very quickly and we are all thinking on our feet. It is important that we take heed of warnings. The sensible thing to do in this situation is to limit our face to face interaction.

What COVID-19 means for our clinic

On Sunday 22nd March we consciously decided to cease offering face to face appointments.

In this instance the risk of infection outweighs the benefit of treatment.

We take this pause with full intention to resume practice when it is safe to do so.

Open for support & herbal medicine

In the interim we are here to support you from a distance. Your Chinese herbal medicine and supplemental prescriptions can be maintained. These can be provided by postal or home delivery. Some supplements are currently running low with some of suppliers. If we have been set up an account through Vital.ly you will be able to view stock levels before ordering.

Consultations for new prescriptions of herbal medicine will be offered by phone, Zoom, WhatsApp or Messenger. I will only charge a small fee for these as distance consultations can not to be claimed through private health insurance. If you are experiencing financial hardship I will waive the consultation fee.

Credible sources of information for COVID-19

We have become saturated with COVID-19 by the media. A lot of misinformation abounds in chaos. If you want up to date and accurate information I suggest the following sources;

Department of health

The Australian government

The Victorian government

World health organisation

The Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists

Additional support networks

COVID-19 Mental health services
