To all my valued clients and referring doctors I hope you all are safe and well in these highly unusual and challenging times.
I have made the decision to make all sessions phone and online with the support of the new medicare Covid items now available to all Australians who are referred by their doctors for psychological support via the Medicare system. At this stage this will be available until the end of September 2020.
I will aim to provide timely and appropriate support to you all and please contact me directly on 3351 2222 or firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any queries or concerns.
I will also be bulk-billing health care workers, doctors, nurses, paramedics and front line workers, and their families and all vulnerable groups during the crisis and also including the following vulnerable groups
*People have had Covid or have been exposed to Covid and are being tested.
* over the age of 70
* People who have chronic illness
* Women who are pregnant or have children under 1 years of age.
*Indigenous people over 50 years
Delivery of mental health care by phone and online is highly effective but I understand that is may be a difficult adjustment for some folks so please let me know if you have any concerns around your care during the crisis.
