WE ARE OPERATING. According to the APA we are able to open for the provision of Health Care. We look forward to assisting you. Here is the APA statement and relevant links.
Further information has become available overnight from the WA government in relation to the delivery of allied health services during the 4 day lockdown for Perth and Peel.
The information states that an ‘Essential Health Services Provider’ includes “any provider of allied health services as essential workers in hospitals and residential care; private practice including telehealth, students etc.”
The APA interprets this to mean that physio is categorized as an essential service and provision of it may continue during the lockdown, including in private practice.
We encourage members to consider telehealth as an option where practicable given the intent of the lockdown rules.

Remember to wear your masks, observe personal hygiene requirements, observe social distancing and sign in with the WA Safe App or the sign in sheet. As this is a changing situation we will endeavour to update you when we get information from the relevant bodies.
