Bellarine Community Health (BCH) is pleased to advise we have re-opened some face to face services following the easing of Commonwealth and State restrictions.
Podiatry and Physiotherapy face to face appointments have recommenced at our Portarlington and Point Lonsdale sites. Dental services are resuming as normal at Point Lonsdale. Diabetes Education face to face appointments have recommenced at Portarlington. Where appropriate, clinical services such as Diabetes Education, Dietetics and Counselling will continue to be offered via telehealth.
Daily appointments will be limited to allow for social distancing and additional cleaning measures to ensure client and staff safety.
Clients who have been placed on a waiting list during the COVID-19 restrictions are being contacted and appointments for subsidised services will continue to be managed based on clinical urgency.
We can also take appointments for new and existing full-fee or private health insurance clients.
Our Physical Wellness Programs and Community Gym are currently still suspended until at least June 22 in line with current restrictions. In the meantime, our team have prepared a number of resources for group exercise participants, view our Online Exercise Programs.
