The Board of the Child Development Network is closely monitoring the Commonwealth and State Governments’ announcements, health advice, and restrictions relating to Coronavirus (COVID-19).
To minimise the spread of the virus and keep the practice premises open to support families and enable face-to-face consultations for as long as possible, the following arrangements will be in place at CDN until further notice.
You and your child should stay at home if:
If you or your child meets any of these criteria, please contact the practice via telephone and discuss your situation. We will reschedule your appointment and attempt to expediate an alternative appointment for you once you have recovered.
The practice is following all of the Health Department guidelines in regard to social distancing, cleaning of surface in waiting rooms and consulting rooms, and use of hand sanitisers and soap and water.
The practice does have video facilities and telephone facilities available for some types of consultations but there are strict conditions for any Medicare rebate on these consultations, and there are some consultations that cannot practically be carried out via these means.
If you would like to request a video consultation or telephone consultation, please contact us by telephone to determine if this is possible in your situation, and whether you might be eligible for any Medicare rebate
Our objective is to keep our staff and clinicians as healthy as possible, so that they can continue to provide a service to families. We appreciate your help in this highly unusual time.
