  • High Risk Foot Appointments

    Wound Innovations High Risk Foot Clinic is now open once a month. Our specialist service is for those suffering from poor circulation, poor sensation and/or foot deformity. Appointments are based at Spring Hill Clinic.

  • Telehealth

    Telehealth appointments allow you and your health professional to have a comprehensive wound consultation with access to the Wound Innovations inter-disciplinary team. These appointments offer the same service by telecommunications technology, except for the wound treatment and dressings. These appointments are offered nation-wide and are ideal for patients with mobility constraints, physical disabilities, residents of aged care facilities and anyone requiring access to advice from a specialist team.

     

Our clinic

Frequently asked questions

What happens in a clinic appointment?

An initial appointment can take up to two hours, subsequent appointments may be less, depending on the complexity of your wound. 

Initial consultation

During your initial appointment you will have access to the inter-disciplinary team who will perform a holistic assessment of your wound management needs. This will include a detailed questionnaire and we will also ask you “what is important to you?” so that our approach is tailored to suit your needs, your lifestyle and what you want to achieve.

Following the consultation, and with your consent, a comprehensive report will be provided to your referrer and any other health professionals involved in your care.

We will also discuss with you our recommended wound management plan including all required appointments and fees so you can make decisions regarding your future wound treatment process.

Wound treatment packages

Depending on your diagnosis, we will recommend a further course of treatment that may include one or more of the following services:

  • Wound management package (two to six subsequent appointments)

  • High risk foot package
  • Wound prevention program
  • Intensive wound treatment package
  • Telehealth services (see below)

What do patients need to wear and bring to clinic appointments?

Please wear loose, comfortable clothing. We recommend that you bring a large slipper or expandable shoe  in case you require bandaging of your lower limb.

Please bring with you a referral from your health professional if you have one, a list of all your current medications (including complimentary and alternative medicines), and any recent test results or other information that might be of assistance.

If you wear compression stockings or orthotic footwear, please bring these with you to your appointment. You may also like to bring any dressings that you are currently using.

You may like to bring a support person with you to your appointment.

Is there parking onsite?

Yes, there is low-cost parking available. Entrance to the carpark is via Hope Street.

Is transport (i.e. ambulance) available?

An ambulance service is available. Please contact our friendly team at our clinic directly: 1300WOUNDS (1300 968 637).

How telehealth works

Telehealth appointments are similar to standard clinic appointments. The patient attends an appointment with their health professional, and a member from Wound Innovations joins the meeting by videoconference. High resolution photos of the wound are taken and shared, progress is monitored, the patient provides feedback and recommendations are made for future care.

You can make a referral for telehealth in the same way as our other services, by completing a Referral form. Click the referral form below and send back to our clinic – please see our page Make a Referral for full details on how to submit your referral securely.
