CLICK HERE TO CHECK IN AT OUR VIRTUAL (telehealth) CLINICopenforbusiness

Latest news: Masks are mandatory when you attend our practice in person, and we request that you log your attendance via our Victorian Government QR code (location code 3D7RE3 in the Service Victoria App) or by writing your details on the physical register at our reception. Elective hospital surgeries are unrestricted and you no longer routinely need to have a COVID test prior to hospital admission. Dr Tomlinson is operating at The Avenue and Glenferrie Private; Epworth Cliveden is indefinitely closed at this time.

We consult with patients via videoconsultation where it is clinically appropriate to do to maximise patient and staff safety under the new COVID normal. Enhanced hygiene measures in our rooms include acrylic screens, masks, hand sanitiser, face shields and physical distancing-related changes; long consultations and our See and Treat service remain adjusted under our COVIDsafe plan to include the use of telehealth to reduce face to face time. We require that all patients provide a referral prior to booking an appointment so we can identify and manage urgent and emergency conditions in a timely manner, and so that Dr Tomlinson can assess your suitability for a telehealth appointment and identify any further information or investigations that might be required before your consultation.
