To minimise the risk of viral infection to the patients of the Liver Transplant Unit, clinics will be closed unless we have spoken with you to make alternative arrangements.
If you have a current appointment booked, please be available on that day between 8.30–10.30am so that we can call you and conduct a review over the phone and organise scripts if necessary.
Urgent appointments with the medical staff will still be available but only after discussing your situation over the phone with the transplant coordinators.
During this period, if you develop a fever, please do not come directly to our clinics.
Please either call your local doctor, attend your local emergency department, come to the Austin Health Emergency Department or discuss what to do with the transplant coordinators.
Please feel free to contact us at any time if you have any questions or concerns:
Post Liver Transplant: 9496 3972 or 9496 5321 (Alison, Julie and Kate) Mon-Fri 8.30am-5.00pm
After Hours Switchboard: 9496 5000 (page LTU registrar)
Apologies for the inconvenience...this situation is evolving and we will keep you updated.
