Urgent call out for WA Psychiatrists - patients in hotel quarantine

The State Incident Control Centre is urgently seeking the services of private psychiatrists who may be willing to see people who are in quarantine in hotels via telehealth.

A model of care for people in quarantine is currently being prioritised for rapid development. It is likely that a mental health nurse will provide triage, and may need to refer some people for psychiatric consultation via telehealth. 

If you are available to help please contact:
Dr Sophie Davison sophie.davison@health.wa.gov.au
