Continuing to Deliver Services

We will continue to deliver our programs, services and groups where we can during this pandemic.  Where we are unable to meet with you in person, telehealth options will be offered such as video or telephone calls.  During a face-to-face appointment we will continue to practice the highest standards of infection control and hygiene and will modify our practices and screening measures as directed by the Victorian Department of Health.

UPDATE 3 June 2021: Following the easing of restrictions in regional Victoria, our Kyneton and Woodend sites will re-open at 9am Friday 4 June.  Our Sunbury site is closed until at least Friday 11 June except for emergency dental appointments.
