At Heart of Melbourne we continue to provide cardiology services
Heart of Melbourne is committed to the health of our patients, families and communities. Right now, that includes taking special steps to prevent the spread of coronavirus, also called COVID-19.
Based on the evolving recommendations published by Victorian and federal authorities we have made the following modifications to our procedures to reduce the risk of infection whilst continuing to provide care for our patients:
We are providing bulk billed telephone consultations to all eligible patients. More details are available on the MBS website. Patients will be informed about whether they will have a telephone or physical consultation.
Essential cardiology testing services continue to operate with all the required precautionary measures. These services include stress testing, Echocardiograms, Holter monitoring, ambulatory blood pressure monitoring, ECG, and inpatient procedures.
Please do not visit us if you have fever or respiratory symptoms. Contact us and we will guide you for the appropriate measures. We are able to offer Telehealth and phone consultations to all eligible patients.
Waiting room seatings have been spaced out to maximise personal space. Please do not arrive to your appointments too early, and only bring essential people with you.
Please contact us if any questions. We are available 6 days a week to help.
We care for our patients and our staff!
We have invested in creating a safe environment with the appropriate equipment, recommended protective gear, and filtered procedure rooms to continue running the our services in the best possible way.
