Thanks to rising covid cases and Geelong taking Melbourne’s COVID overflow we will be forced to reduce elective surgery from Oct 11 by order of the department of health by 50%. The exact details of this are still to be worked out. This crisis is likely to go on for months and we urge everyone to get vaccinated. We will contact you once we have more definitive information.
