COVID-19 Update: July

Posted: July 2020

We remain open for business as we are classed as an 'essential health service'. We are following all SA Health and Government advice, as well as that of the Australian Hand Therapy Association.

The safety and health of staff and patients is our highest priority.

To care for everyone we have:

  • Hand sanitiser for everyone before coming inside the building
  • Spaced out our waiting room seats (social distance rules)
  • Made only patients (not partners/ children etc) allowed to use the waiting room – interpreters and carers are still allowed.
  • Reception pens and materials disinfected between uses
  • Disinfected all shared surfaces regularly (e.g. door handles, seats etc).
  • Therapy areas are disinfected between clients
  • Face masks and gloves are available on request.

SA Hand Therapy staff are all:

  • Expertly trained and certified in hand hygiene
  • Disinfecting all surfaces, desks, chairs, equipment regularly
  • Following social distancing guidelines wherever possible.

Telehealth Services

Telehealth consultations are available if you would prefer not to attend the clinic in person. Our work does require “hands on” treatment in many instances, however we have been looking closely at how tele-health can work many cases. It is absolutely possible!

If you are in a high-risk category and would like to use tele-health consultation as an option instead of coming into the clinic, please give our reception a call on (08) 8277 9667 for further advice and associated fees.

We continue to maintain the highest standards of safety and care. With regular and thoughtful adjustments to how we do things, we are still able to provide you expert hand therapy services indefinitely.

"Our team of therapists are all passionate professionals with an in-depth knowledge of anatomy and injuries."
