Melbourne Hand Rehab announce face-to-face hand therapy treatments resume today

Face-to-face hand therapy easing of restrictions

It is with great excitement that we announce to our community the easing of restrictions for hand therapy will be coming into effect today, Monday 28th September.

 

Face-to-face hand therapy is now allowed to prevent deterioration and to prevent a significant increase in pain, frequency of treatment required or substantial increase in recovery time (dhhs.vic.gov.au). Anyone who would like to resume face-to-face visits and hands on treatment is now warmly welcomed back into our clinics.

Hand therapy is an essential service:

  • You DO NOT need a GP referral to see our therapists.
  • You CAN travel outside the 5km radius to receive healthcare (use your appointment confirmation as proof of service).

 

Telehealth video consultations and home visits have been very popular with the Melbourne Hand Rehab community and these services will continue on for everyone who prefers these sessions.

 

Our Bulleen and Hoppers Crossing clinics will reopen to clients as well.

 

We look forward to seeing you in person again.

 

 

Our goal is to provide you with the right hand therapy treatment to help you get back to doing all the things you love.

 

We are pleased to be able to offer a range of options for treatment to suit your needs:

 

All of our safety and hygiene protections will be continuing to make sure we all stay safe. These include:

  • All staff have completed the Australian Government Department of Health COVID-19 infection control training.
  • Screening questions at the time of making your initial appointment.
  • Temperature check on arrival.
  • Low volume clinics with only 1-3 practitioners on at any time and 1-2 patients an hour.
  • Extra cleaning on hands and surfaces. Patients will be asked wash or sanitise hands on arrival.
  • Team members and patients who have flu-like symptoms or have travelled overseas in past 2 weeks are being asked to self-isolate.
  • Installed perspex-like screens at our reception desks.
  • Touch free payment.
  • Masks available at all clinics.
  • Spacious waiting rooms to ensure there is 4 sqm per person.
