Easing of Lockdown Restrictions (VIC)
Update 20 September 2021
OTA has written to The Hon. Minister Foley to express the profession’s strong objection to the fact that while people in regional Victoria can now get a haircut and facial, they are unable to access allied health care unless that care is deemed to be ‘essential’. You can find the letter here.
OTA implores the State Government to take the long-term health consequences of its policy into serious consideration and to allow immediate and full access to face-to-face occupational therapy in regional Victoria. OTA also asks that access to allied health care be deemed a priority as the State Government plots its road map out of lockdown for the entire state.
OTA members and non-members are encouraged to share their concerns with their local MP by using the template letter available here.
