At Central Coast Haematology, we are happy to offer telehealth consultations, preferably via video call. We use a secure and private video conferencing system for Telehealth consultations.

The platform we use, Coviu, is free for patients and works on your smartphone or computer browser as long as you have a camera available. No software installation is required. It utilises peer-to-peer and end-to-end encryption and is custom built in compliance with Australia’s Privacy Principles.

Telehealth not only reduces the risk of exposure to COVID-19 but provides a convenient alternative for patients when attending in-person is difficult.

At the time of your telehealth appointment, our staff will send you a link to either your email or mobile phone depending on your preference. Simply click the link and enter the virtual waiting room. When our doctor or nurse practitioner is ready to see you, the consultation will begin.

If you would like family members to be included in the video consultation, please advise our secretarial staff and we will arrange for them to join the video call. Central Coast Haematology will also conduct appointments via Zoom or Skype when requested.

Central Coast Haematology requires all patients to follow the NSW Health COVID-19 guidelines (link below). To ensure the safety of all patients and staff we ask that only the patient and one other visitor/family member attend each consultation. If you would like to bring additional family members to your appointment, please call our staff to discuss if this is feasible. 

If you are experiencing cold or flu-like symptoms, or have been in a recent COVID hotspot (link below) please ring to arrange a telehealth (video call) appointment. 

We are committed to patient safety, and request all visitors to the practice use the hand sanitiser that is provided upon entry. 

A COVID Safety Plan is in place at both of our locations, and with it we ask that patients work with us to ensure the practice is as safe as possible for all. 

We ask all family members accompanying the patient to their appointment to check-in using the Service NSW app which can be downloaded to your smartphone prior to your appointment (link below). 

We follow NSW Health guidelines regarding the wearing of masks and depending upon their advice you may be asked to bring and wear a mask to your appointment. There have been major changes at our rooms to reduce the risk of infection transmission including protective screens, reduced seating in our waiting rooms and increased cleaning regimes. We may also ask that you remain in your car until your appointment time. 

We thank you in advance for your compliance with the NSW COVID-19 restrictions which aim to ensure we all stay safe and stop the spread of COVID-19.

Dr Richard Blennerhassett and Dr Cecily Forsyth have established the Central Coast Haematology Clot Clinic to facilitate rapid specialist assessment of patients with venous thromboembolism. We aim to see patients within a week of receiving a referral and thereby reduce ED presentations and hospitalisations. We will review the cause of the clot, the appropriate duration of therapeutic anticoagulation, and arrange any further assessments that might be required such as thrombophilia screening.

All patients must have a valid referral addressed to either Dr Blennerhassett or Dr Forsyth. Referrals from ED staff specialists or Wyong/Gosford Hospital RMOs are accepted as long as the doctor has included their valid provider number.

Referrals can be made by uploading the referral form or by faxing the referral to (02) 8212 5864 or email to admin@cchaematology.org.au. We will then contact the patient to arrange an appointment.
