COVID-19 & Newcastle Colorectal Surgery
Newcastle Colorectal Surgery are still taking new patient referrals. We are committed to the safety of our staff and patients and given this consultations will be via telephone. As most people are impacted or isolated due to COVID-19 all telephone consultations will be bulk billed. We will be slowly reintroducing face to face consultations over the coming months.
If we do need to see the patient face to face we will make the appropriate arrangements.
We are still investigating and operating on patients with cancer and semi-urgent surgical conditions. From April 27th 2020 we will also be operating on various non-urgent elective conditions in line with the Federal Governments current recommendations. We have temporarily deferred some non-urgent (Cat 3) elective surgery and are in the process of contacting all those patients affected. These patients will be recalled at a later date by our practice.
