COVID 19 ARRANGEMENTS- SEPTEMBER 2021

COVID 19 ARRANGEMENTS-UPDATE DECEMBER 2021

All of us at Melbourne Developmental and Behavioural Paediatrics is continuing to commit to protecting our patients, families and staff during this time. We are a specialist paediatric clinic therefore we do not assess or treat acutely unwell children.

From 2022 it is expected appointments will be face to face on-site, but this can change at short notice due to COVID regulations and certain circumstances. Your SMS reminder sent out at least 48 hours in advance of the appointment will confirm the exact details.

Dr Chitra ChandranĀ will continue to offer telehealth appointments only, until further notice.

Please do not attend on-site if you or your child are unwell with COVID symptoms or have been tested and are awaiting results. We can change your existing appointment to a telehealth consultation. Please call us in the event this occurs or email us of your situation if you cannot get through on the phone.

Patients and families who are attending will have temperatures taken and will be required to cleanse hands before entering the consulting room.

Masks will be required for all who are 12 years and older

A maximum of 2 adults and the patient can be in the room with the doctor.

Once you check-in at Reception you can wait in your car if you would prefer. If you do choose to wait in the reception area, please note at this time we do not have toys, reading material or magazines available. We do have ABC for Kids on the TV. You are welcome to bring your own toy, book etc.

We are continuing to experience extraordinary demand on our phones. Please be patient and do not hold on. If you leave your number we WILL get back to you. This is expected before the end of the day, or early the next day. Thank you for your understanding.

We thank you for your co-operation. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to speak to the Reception staff.

Please Take Care
