NEW PATIENTS

We are currently seeing new patients in our rooms and remotely via phone or video – this service is referred to as Telehealth.  All appointments require a referral. To book an appointment call 8267 8267 or your chosen Surgeon. If you are attending our rooms, please see the information below.

TELEHEALTH PHONE & VIDEO CONSULTS

Telehealth consultations are conducted via phone or video service. This allows our patients to speak with our doctors from the safety of their home.  If you have a Telehealth consultation booked, our team will provide details at what time and how you will be contacted.

If you miss the call from your doctor, don’t worry; they will call again within an hour or during the scheduled window.

ATTENDING OUR ROOMS

We are currently seeing patients at our Ashford, Bedford Park, Elizabeth Vale, North Adelaide & Parkside rooms.

To assist with social distancing, please don’t arrive early or late to your appointment and minimise the number of people attending with you.

Anyone attending our rooms who is not a patient or essential support person will be asked to wait outside.

DO NOT ATTEND

Do not attend our rooms if you:

  • Are unwell
  • Have travelled overseas within 14 days
  • Have travelled interstate within 14 days

Please call your Surgeons PA at Orthopedics SA to discuss.

ELECTIVE SURGERY

On May 12th the State Government announced that restrictions on elective surgery in SA will be removed commencing 14th May 2020. We are back working normally and patients can now have elective surgery. It remains important that we maintain social distancing and this means that some minor restrictions to capacity will remain in place to keep you safe.

Our team is working with hospitals to reschedule cancelled surgeries and will be in contact with our patients to discuss their individual circumstances.
