As you may have heard, the Australian Government made an announcement on the 21st of April in regards to the restrictions on elective surgery. Unfortunately pain procedures did not come under the category for reinstatement starting from the 28th April.
What does this mean to NIPM and NIPM patients awaiting procedures?
Unfortunately we can not book/rebook procedures as the restrictions still apply to us. Please be reassured that you will be contacted by a staff member from NIPM when we are able to give you a procedure date. Thank you for your patience at this time. In the meantime NIPM is constantly striving to provide you outstanding care, delivered in a safe manner during COVID-19.
Please see link below to the official Australian Government Department of Health. There is a list under the Prime Minister’s statement of elective surgery that will recommence.
Please remain positive and safe.
Thank you from the NIPM Team
