COVID-19 and ENT services

COVID-19 update

We are currently in unchartered waters with the COVID-19 pandemic. At ENTSA we are, as always, committed to the health and wellbeing of our staff and our patients. Ear, nose and throat examinations and surgery however are considered extremely high risk for virus transmission and so we are making changes in our practice.

The current recommendations from the Australian Society of Otolaryngology Head and Neck Surgery (ASOHNS) are:

  1. Defer all non-urgent clinic appointments
  2. Defer all non-urgent surgical procedures

As a result of this, our practice is changing. We are still here to care for new and existing patients. We have established a Telehealth system to enable continuity of care for existing patients and a ‘non-contact’ option for new patients to access an initial assessment and commencement of treatment.

Please call us to discuss Telehealth options on: (08) 7200 2539

We will still see some patients in the office however this will be limited to protect the health of you and our staff.

If you attend, we ask you to comply with the following:

  • Only the patient to enter the building - no families or groups please. For children, please only have one parent attend.
  • If you have returned from overseas or interstate recently, we request you do not attend the clinic for 14 days from your arrival. If you have an urgent problem please call us and we will discuss alternative arrangements.
  • If you have had contact with someone with known or suspected COVID-19 do not attend.
  • If you are unwell, please do not attend the clinic. We can proceed with a Telehealth consultation.
  • Please observe the Government’s recommendations for hand hygiene and social distancing
