Coronavirus update: All suitable consultations at Melbourne Hand Surgery are currently conducted via telehealth (phone or video consultation) to maximise the patient and staff safety. We have implemented enhanced hygiene meaures in our rooms including acrylic screens, masks, hand sanitiser, face shields and physical distancing-related changes.
We are cannot guarantee that our safety-first approach to providing essential healthcare in these unprecented times will ensure that we avoid unexpected disruptions in the weeks ahead, but that - in addition to providing you with excellent care - is our objective. Do not be alarmed by our face masks, screens or shields. We don't want anyone to become unwell as a result of accessing healthcare services, and we don't want the continuity of care that we provide to our patients to be affected by a phone call from a contact tracer advising our staff that we must stay at home and self-isolate for 14 days.
Victorians are in this together and together we will get through this. Thank you for your understanding as our community works through these unprecedented times together (last updated: 7 July 2020).
