COVID-19 information and Telehealth options

Based on the latest health advice, a mandatory vaccination policy for a majority of occupations and workforces in WA will be introduced in a phased approach.

The policy follows the existing mandates in place for workers in high-risk industries, including those interacting with people at an increased risk of being infected with COVID-19, or people who are vulnerable to the impacts of COVID-19, or where it is necessary to avoid catastrophic risk to the safety of the community.

The policy’s phased approach is to apply mandatory vaccinations for more industries in WA, as well as a requirement for other critical workers to be vaccinated to attend work in the event of a lockdown or similar restrictions.

Please be assured that as per the WA Government mandate, all Vivid staff including Clinicians and Administrators have been fully vaccinated. As WA heads towards the easing of the hard borders which is currently due to become effective on the 5th February 2022, we will continue to follow the WA Government and Health advice ensuring the safety of our staff, our clients and our community.

Vivid’s clinical psychologists are seeing clients for ‘face to face’ or in-person consults.

Please be assured that our practice is open and we are following the recommendations set by the WA Health Dept and the Federal Government regarding self-isolation, hygiene, and social distancing to ensure our practice is a safe space for clients and staff.

Your safety is a priority for us.

Please do not attend the clinic if you have a fever or acute respiratory symptoms. We will happily arrange a telehealth consultation for you. You may be eligible for a Medicare rebate for telehealth consults – please feel free to check with our reception.

If you are wanting to reschedule, cancel or take up a telehealth session we would really appreciate the usual notice of at least 24 hours prior to your appointment time.

Medicare Telehealth

Currently Medicare’s temporary COVID-19 telehealth items are available to all Medicare eligible Australians for a wide range of consultations, for example consults under a Mental Health Care Plan, Eating Disorder Management and Chronic Disease Management Plans.
