The operating hours of our Melbourne clinic have been changed. The clinic will be closed on Monday and open 9am–5pm Tuesday to Friday until further notice.
If you have an appointment at the Baker Specialist Clinics in the coming weeks please take note of the measures we have in place to address the possible spread of Novel Coronavirus.
We have been advised that the containment of such a virus is very much dependent on individual behaviour. As such, we ask that you contact us immediately on 8532 1800 if you have:
- been in close or casual contact with a confirmed Novel Coronavirus (2019-nCoV) case
- been in close or casual contact with someone who has travelled to or transited through Mainland China, Italy, Republic of Korea and Iran within the past 14 days
- travelled overseas in the past 14 days.
If necessary, we will work with you to make alternative arrangements regarding your upcoming appointment.
As a reminder, if you are unwell or concerned about your health, please contact your GP or a health professional. If you suspect you may have the Novel Coronavirus, please call the Victorian Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) dedicated Hotline on 1800 675 398.
If your appointment is urgent, you require a prescription or have any further questions, please feel free to contact us on 8532 1800.
Due to the impacts of coronavirus our community dietetics and diabetes nurse education appointments will be conducted by phone until further notice.
The format of these appointments will be the same as our face to face sessions and fees will apply. These steps have been taken to ensure we can continue to support our clients in the community during these difficult times.
It is important to be proactive in managing your diabetes by being prepared for sick days. Do not wait until you are sick.
Prepare yourself now by reading the following fact sheets, if you are injecting insulin or using an insulin pump you should identify your total daily dose of insulin and your individual management doses.
