Avoid The Hospitals During an Emergency - Coronavirus Update Gold Coast
1 May 2020
Active Hand Therapy offers a Mobile Casting Clinic. We specialise in the treatment and care of all fractures, breaks, broken bones, sprains and wounds.
As the coronavirus continues to spread, the demand on our Gold Coast University Hospital, Robina Hospital and Tweed emergency departments will only increase. Our Private Fracture Clinic is now offering a home visit service to provide care while remaining at home. This is a small way to help alleviate some of the pressure of these big hospitals at this time.
- Providing casts
- Removal of casts
- Customised splints
- Wound care
- All aspects of the aftercare of these injuries.
We have onsite physiotherapists, specialised hand therapists and can facilitate X-Rays and surgeon referrals if required.
Due to the increase in patients avoiding busy hospitals during the Covid-19 Pandemic we are now extending our services to include mobile casting and customised splints.
Give us a call on (07) 5526 4066 and our lovely staff can step you through the process.
Our Mobile Home Based Fracture Service provides
- Treatment for broken bones and fractures
