St Vincent’s hospitals will recommence some elective surgeries as of Monday 27 April, 2020, in accordance with the guidance of the Australian Health Protection Principal Committee (AHPPC) and as endorsed by the National Cabinet. Per this government guidance, there are limitations on the number and types of elective surgeries which can proceed.
Here at St Vincent’s, as at every hospital, the decision to proceed with surgery will be assessed by the treating specialist and St Vincent’s clinical staff on an individual case basis, according to AHPPC guidelines and specific criteria such as the risk of the procedure, the condition of the patient, available stocks of personal protective equipment (PPE), and hospital ICU and bed capacity.
If you are considering or are scheduled for surgery, please discuss your procedure with your treating doctor, GP or specialist. Alternatively you can visit the State Department of Health information for more detail on the category 2 and select category 3 procedures which have been allowed to proceed.
