We have entered unpredictable times with the recent global pandemic. In NSW we are currently in Stage 2 action, with the prediction that Stage 3 response may not be far off.
We understand the impact that this may have for some of the appointments already made and the delay in claims processing for many claimants.
As a result, and where possible we are offering the following services:
- Psychiatrist evaluation – Telehealth
- Review assessments with Occupational Physician Telehealth
- Assessments where physical examination is not imperative – e.g. treatment disputes
- File Reviews
- Injury Management Consultation File review
We are also aware that a number of pre booked appointments may require cancellation. Given these circumstances, we plan to open more days in the future to catch up with any cancelled appointments, and therefore urge you to consider rescheduling at a later date.
At this stage and given the current recommendations from Australian Chief Health Minister, we are continuing to conduct assessments with the necessary recommendations.
This includes the following accommodations:
- Social distancing
- Gloves with examination
- PN5 masks with any physical examinations
- Infection control procedures to clean surfaces after each use
At Health People Legal we are constantly monitoring the advice and information provided by the Australian Government and Health Specialists regarding the COVID – 19 pandemic on a regular basis.
Whilst we are operating as normal with face to face consultations at present, we are also offering video-consultations and file review services to aide our clients in this challenging and uncertain times.
As always, our main priority is the health and safety of our people, customers and clients whilst providing a seamless service.
