Cast Removal and Application available
In the midst of the Covid-19 crisis, NSW Health are working hard to move all non-essential services out of our acute hospital setting. This is involving triage of patients booked to attend outpatient orthopaedic clinics to get a cast for a fracture or cast removal, application of orthopaedic braces and outpatient orthopaedic physiotherapy. If you are booked for these services, you may be offered a telephone consult to reduce the risk of exposure in attending a hospital clinic. Our Physiotherapists at Regent Street Physiotherapy in Newcastle can assist you by applying or removing a cast or assisting with bracing and orthopaedic exercises, in consultation with your managing doctor. We are happy to liaise with them on your behalf, and ensure that your care is not impacted at this time. If you have any questions please give us a call on 49509805.
