Kids Dig Food dietitians continue to offer flexible appointments via Phone, Telehealth and (from 26th May 2020) face-to-face clinic appointments. In the interest of the health and safety of our client families and staff and due to the declared pandemic for COVID-19 (Coronavirus) please do not attend our clinics if you are unwell or have been unwell in the past 2 weeks, if you have recently returned from interstate or overseas or have been in contact with a person who has been quarantined. Please call our reception team ASAP on 1300 971 609 if you wish to convert your appointment to a Phone or Telehealth appointment, or to cancel. If you will have difficulty adhering to social distancing measures (e.g. if you need to bring along small children to the appointment), then a Phone or Telehealth appointment is recommended.
