COVID-19

Clinic update as of 17 May 2022:


Dear Patients

We are happy to advise that we have rolled back most of the COVID-19 precautions previously in place however we still require masks to be worn in the clinic.

We still urge you to minimise contact with other people during your cycle and do everything you can to protect yourself from infection. The Glenelg Day Surgery, like all other private day hospitals, still cannot treat COVID-positive patients so we will have to cancel your cycle if you test positive for COVID-19. Whilst we will not charge you for the cost of the cycle, it would be heartbreaking to have to cancel.

Please note, that children can still not enter the clinic, so please make alternative childcare arrangements.

If you have any COVID symptoms please do not attend the clinic.

Please continue to check our Facebook page for up-to-date information.

FAQs

We will have to cancel your treatment but Flinders Fertility will not charge you for this cycle. There may be other fees that are not refundable such as for medications or anaesthetist's fees.

In line with the current Royal Australasian College of Surgeons (RACS) guideline, surgeries (including egg retrievals) for patients recovering from a COVID 19 infection are likely to be delayed by 8 weeks.

If you are deemed a close contact, please call the clinic. Depending on the length of isolation it is possible that your cycle will need to be cancelled but we will advise you based on your particular circumstances.
