In response, the Allergy and Dermatology departments have developed an emergency telehealth clinic for Monash Health employees and guidance on mask comfort.
Initially this is a self-referral process, meaning that a referral from a healthcare professional will not be required.
The telehealth clinic is a drop-in clinic and requires a UR number. If you do not have a UR already, please complete the registration form (also below) and email it through to SMR support – SMRsupport@monashhealth.org. Please email the day prior to your clinic presentation.
If the telehealth clinic reaches capacity on any day we will notify the waiting employees of this.
The specialist who sees you will document the consult in SMR and will write a letter to your GP after the consult. If a script is required, this will be sent to the Monash Health Pharmacy – with collection available at the Pharmacy departments of Monash Medical Centre (Clayton), Dandenong, Moorabbin or Casey Hospitals. If ongoing review by Dermatology is required, the specialist will send a referral to them, and for ongoing allergy review, you will need you to see your GP to access an ongoing referral.
