New Safety Measures

Your booking can be rescheduled by emailing our outpatient booking unit on outpatients@eyeandear.org.au or calling 9929 8500. Please note, we are experiencing a high volume of calls during this time, and advise you to email, where possible.

As part of our response to managing the coronavirus outbreak, we have:

  • Introduced a Clinical Concierge desk at all entrances of the hospital for visitors and patients to answer screening questions, have a temperature check and use hand sanitiser upon entry;
  • Restricted ward visitations to one visitor per patient for one hour per day;
  • Encouraged patients to come alone or use a carer to drop and go, if appropriate;
  • Enforced social distancing of at least 1.5m wherever practical;
