As you will be aware the current COVID19 is causing many services in Australia to be disrupted.
EPC is considered an Essential Service under the current State of Emergency. EPC, as an essential service, will endeavour to keep services running however over the next few months we may have to adapt our service.
Should this occur you will be informed. Our goal is to ensure we provide the best community based specialist palliative care services as we have always done but please appreciate that we are doing this in a difficult climate and therefore we may require flexibility.
If you have any questions please do not hesitate to make contact and we will get back to you as soon as possible.
