Diana Francis Hand Therapy

Stage 4: Covid-19 Update

Diana Francis Hand Therapy is a Covid-safe practice.

Diana Francis Hand Therapy is OPEN for new patients and review appointments however, under stage 4, there are some new restrictions to how we deliver your care.

Most appointments will now be treated via Telehealth using video consultations. Video consultations are a great way to continue your treatment, while minimising the risk associated with a face to face contact. Over the last 6 months we have treated many patients via video consultation and have found them to be extremely successful. However, video consultations may not be appropriate in all situations, for example if you require wound care or splinting.

If you would like to make an appointment, please call us on 8547 1195 and we can discuss the best treatment option for you. 


We are now consulting solely from our main rooms until further notice.
