At Sydney Vascular Ultrasound we are continuing to closely monitor the COVID19 situation and to take the advice of NSW Health and the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons. The rooms remain open for new and returning patients. We are scheduling consultations and diagnostic testing as indicated to manage vascular surgical problems. Patient and staff safety is our top priority and we have in place infection control measures including disinfection and social distancing to mitigate against the possible transmission of COVID19.
Patients who are high risk or showing symptoms of COVID19 and are unable to attend the rooms, but require an assessment or review, can access telehealth including video conference consultations.
In terms of surgery, vascular procedures for public and private patients are being scheduled in line with Australian and New Zealand Society for Vascular Surgery and NSW Health guidelines.
