We are still open during lockdown 27 May 2021 to 03 June 2021
We are able to see patients who need urgent care. The criteria for this care is as follows:
to prevent a significant change/deterioration in functional independence which would result in an escalation of care needs (e.g. an increase in frequency of treatment needed, an increased need for prescription medication due to a significant increase in pain, requirement for specialist input or review, an increase in care needs, and/or a substantial increase to anticipated recovery time associated with a delay in receiving services);
to provide assessment and diagnostic services to clients / patients whose care have been delayed as a result of previous restrictions, with any further delay likely to result in deterioration in functional independence or adverse health outcomes (including access to diagnostic imaging services or assessment for prescription of assistive equipment and technology);
to provide services that are essential as part of a broader plan of care with a medical practitioner (e.g. fitting a brace post-surgery);
to provide services that are part of a conservative management plan to avoid or delay elective surgery (as agreed with treating team); and
to provide services immediately following elective surgery that prevent secondary complications or aid functional recovery (as agreed with treating team).
If you meet the above criteria an appointment can be made with Box Hill Osteopathy.
Please be assured we are following strict hygiene protocols to ensure the safety of our patients and ourselves. Please ensure you wear a mask to your appointment, sanitize your hands and check-in using the QR code
