Stage 4 restrictions update

We are sorry for any confusion over this Stage 4 restriction in Melbourne. We and our associations have been working full time to find clarity on who can receive treatment. It has been clarified that no GP referral is required to attend your allied health appointment and that these face to face services are permissible only when essential to maintain health and prevent functional deterioration. This does not apply for Myotherapy patients or Counselling patients at this stage, unfortunately.

As we are offering an essential healthcare service it is also permissible to travel more than 5km from your home for your appointment. We can provide you with a letter of attendance or you can use your appointment confirmation email or SMS reminder.

We continue to follow all recommended guidelines for infection control and keeping social distance. Please be mindful as you enter our waiting areas of the number of people allowed at a time. If waiting outside in your car until the time of appointment is also an option please do. All practitioners are wearing masks and face shields and we ask that you keep your mask on for the duration of your appointment. Face to face interaction adheres to strict hygiene protocols. The clinic is being sanitised and aired between each patient and scheduling is such that we avoid crossing over.

We encourage you to embrace your health by focusing on what you can do and we look forward to assisting you in every way we can. If you have any of the following symptoms:

Fever
Cough
Shortness of Breath
Sore Throat
You must postpone your appointment and get COVID tested. We will waive late cancellation charges if you are unwell. We can also assure you that our practitioners will not be attending work if they are unwell and if unwell they will be required to COVID test negative prior to returning.
