Patient Survey

Purpose

Stage 4 restrictions in Victoria limit a number of activities including who can access physiotherapy and other allied health treatment (including exercise physiology).

As previously communicated Healthy Bodies Physiotherapy remains open for face to face consultations. Patients are permitted to travel greater than 5km to receive health care and do NOT require a GP referral to attend.

You are receiving this survey to determine whether face to face treatment is necessary in your case under stage 4 restrictions.

The below checklist will help to determine this, or if your appointment should be conducted as telehealth (over phone/video) or rescheduled until after Stage 4 restrictions are lifted (after 13th September 2020).

How to proceed

Please fill out the below form and advise Healthy Bodies Physiotherapy on 9584 6919 if your appointment needs to be rescheduled or changed to telehealth.

If your care is deemed essential, please print this form and bring with you to your appointment. The form may be used as evidence of your essential travel needs.
