Melbourne in 4th Stage 4 COVID-19 Lockdown – Patient Help Lines

Melbourne in 4th Stage 4 COVID-19 Lockdown. - Help Lines

That means more than 160 days of the past 12 months have been challenging for most of us and worse even for women with children or living with domestic violence.

These are some help lines you can share with your patients.

COVID-19 Patient Help Lines

If you are lucky enough to be living in another state enjoying the freedom of seeing loved ones, circulating without restriction, holidaying and socialising, please spare a thought for your Victorian sisters down here, who are managing patients who are grieving loss of loved ones, the frustration of having done the right thing and still feeling like they’re being ‘punished’.

Many people describe feeling powerless, hopeless, angry, frustrated and  worse than anything they’ve felt before. An emptiness. People are describing losing hope. These are the conversations GPs are having everyday multiple times. It is hard to keep smiling and say that it’ll all get better even though we know, eventually it will.

On the upside however, vaccination queues are growing and media reports of ‘risks of dying from clots’ seem less important than loss of freedom. Onwards we go, AFMW congratulates all our Victorian Medical Women for keeping Victorians safe through yet another critical phase in the COVID-19 pandemic.”
