• Telehealth Services On Offer At Alphington Sports Medicine Clinic

    26 March 2020

    To alleviate concerns and minimise exposure to COVID-19, while continuing to offer essential services to the public as best we can, we have introduced Telehealth consults at Alphington Sports Medicine Clinic.

    Please Note: At this stage, for as long as it is safe and within Government regulations, we remain open for physical consultations. 

    What is Telehealth? 
    In short, video consultations between health professionals and their patients.
    It allows for the exchange of health information between a practitioner and patient in separate locations.
    While this is not suitable for all appointments, it is an option we want to offer as widely as we can to ensure as many people as possible can access the help they need.
    Initially we will be introducing video consults for appointments with Physiotherapists, one of our Sport & Exercise Medicine Physicians, and one of our Sport & Exercise Medicine Registrars, but we will look to expand it across other services soon. In addition, all of our Sports Medicine Doctors currently have the capacity to do phone consultations.

    Construction Is Underway . . .

     

    Well actually, it has been for a while, but photos of pipes going in underground and footings being poured aren't as interesting!

     

    While that was happening the steel framework was being fabricated off-site.

     

    This week the frame has been going up, and quickly, so things are really starting to take shape.

  • Coronavirus Management at Alphington Sports Medicine Clinic

    16 March 2020

    As a health orientated business we are obviously taking the Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) situation very seriously. The health and safety of our patients and staff is of upmost importance and we are following Government health recommendations.

     

    Taking into consideration the information and advice from health authorities, along with the fact that much of our work here is done in enclosed spaces and includes close contact, often touch, we have chosen to put certain measures in place to limit the risk of exposure.
