With the current COVID-19 guidelines still in place, please see below for some minor changes at Beachside Health & Movement.

We are open for urgent care with our safety practices in place. We are available for advice and telehealth for all non-urgent care.

Current DHHS Restrictions in place

** until 11.59pm on Thursday, 2 September 2021 – the overriding guidelines are:

  • Face to Face care will only be provided where adequate care cannot be provided via telehealth to a patient requiring urgent care. 

The definition of urgent clinical care for this purpose is:.

DIRECT CLINICAL CARE (AND OTHER CLINICAL SUPPORT ACTIVITY NECESSARY TO SUPPORT DIRECT CLINICAL CARE) THAT PREVENTS A SIGNIFICANT CHANGE/DETERIORATION IN FUNCTIONAL INDEPENDENCE NECESSITATING ESCALATION OF CARE OR IS REQUIRED AS AN ADJUNCT TO OTHER URGENT MEDICAL/SURGICAL INTERVENTIONS

For example, urgent clinical care;

  • that avoids a potential hospital admission or emergency department presentation
  • that avoids serious acute consequences or acute deterioration
  • that prevents/delays the need for further specialist medical or surgical intervention
  • that prevents an increase in care needs that would necessitate additional carer supports or change in accommodation needs
  • that limits secondary complications post surgery

where deferral would lead to long term adverse consequences (ie. delays to child development)
