COVID-19 Alert - WA Surgery Advice

We at WA Surgery treat the risk of COVID-19 very seriously. Safety of our patients and staff is our priority. To ensure that we have various policies and procedures in place.

Dear patients,

It is really important that we all continue to follow Government recommendations to reduce the spread of COVID-19 such as practicing good hygiene, keeping a physical distance, and other advice. In our practice, we have ensured that all Government recommendations are followed.

As you all will be aware that the Federal Government has suspended all routine elective surgeries and endoscopy at public and private hospitals throughout Australia except for Category 1 and Urgent Category 2 cases effective from Tuesday 31st March 2020.  This decision will free-up resources such as hospital capacity and protective equipment that may be required to deal with an expected increase of coronavirus patients.
