COVID-19 Pandemic Update

27/03/2020

ASOHNS (the representative organisation for Ear, Nose and Throat Head and Neck Surgeons in Australia) have made the recommendation that all non-urgent face to face ENT consultations and surgery should be delayed until the current COVID-19 crisis has settled.

ENT Clinics nationwide remains committed to providing a service for our patients, GPs and the broader Gold Coast, Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne communities.

 

We are still able to provide patient consultations via phone and TeleHealth.

 

We will also be providing urgent face to face consultations on a case-by-case basis.

Our phones and email will remain in operation for any enquiries.

We appreciate the gravity of the decision and will endeavour to ensure that impacts on GP workloads and patient care is minimised wherever possible.

This decision was based on evidence from both Wuhan and the UK that ENT procedures including nasendoscopy carry an increased risk of transmission. Therefore, non-urgent procedures are to be delayed to ensure the safety of both patients and staff. Thank you for your understanding.
