COVID-19 PANDEMIC UPDATE

24/03/2020

ASOHNS (the representative organisation for Ear, Nose and Throat Head and Neck Surgeons in Australia) have made the recommendation that all non-urgent ENT consultations and surgery should be delayed until the current COVID-19 crisis has settled.

ENT Clinics nationwide remains committed to providing a service for our patients, GPs and the broader Gold Coast, Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne communities.

We are still able to provide support to GP’s requiring advice and to consult with patients via phone and Telehealth consultations. We will also be providing urgent consultations on a case-by-case basis.

Our phones and email will remain in operation for any enquiries.

To facilitate a patient having a consultation with our ENT Surgeons:

  • Please provide the patient with a referral
  • Ask the patient to call ENT Clinics and make an appointment for a phone consultation
  • Our doctors will triage referrals for phone consultations, in person consultations or delayed appointments
  • We will remain available for urgent consultations (suspected malignancy etc.)

We appreciate the gravity of the decision and will endeavour to ensure that impacts on GP workloads and patient care is minimised wherever possible.

This decision was based on evidence from both Wuhan and the UK that ENT procedures including nasendoscopy carry an increased risk of transmission. Therefore, non-urgent procedures are to be delayed to ensure the safety of both patients and staff.

We thank you for your understanding.
