To protect the health and wellbeing of the whole population, we ask that you DO NOT come to any of our clinics:

- If you have travelled interstate to a low or medium risk state or territory in the last 14 days prior to your appointment; OR
- If you have had close contact with someone from a low or medium risk state or territory in the last 14 days prior to your appointment
Please contact us by telephone on (08) 9380 0333 during business hours or online should any of the above apply to you and our team will assist you to make suitable arrangements.
To limit the number of people within our practice at any one time, we do encourage patients to attend their appointments alone wherever possible.
From 6am Tuesday 2 February 2021, it is a Government requirement that our practice records all patient and visitor information for the purposes of COVID-19 contact tracing. This is a Government lead initiative.
We have a unique QR code on reception for you to self scan via the SafeWA app when visiting. We recommend you download the SafeWA app in advance – available from the Apple App Store and Google Play Store.
The SafeWA app will hold the information for 28 days and this information will only be used for contact tracing purposes.

We urge all patients to follow the Government’s guidelines, including self-isolation following the return from any recent overseas or interstate travel. Please visit the WA Department of Health website for more information or call the National Coronavirus helpline on 1800 020 080.
If you have surgery planned, it is strongly recommended you do not travel with a return date less than four (4) weeks prior to your surgery date.
Video and Telephone Consultations
Our surgeons are continuing certain face-to-face consultations however, upon request and if appropriate for your care, our surgeons can offer Telehealth consultations via video-conferencing (e.g. Skype, Zoom, Facetime etc) or telephone for when video-conferencing is not available.
Please contact us to discuss whether a Telehealth consultation will be suitable for you.
When Can I Undergo Surgery?
