Request Form for the provision of Eye Protection (goggles)
Please ensure you have read the tranche 5 guidelines for the provision of eye protection as required by the Department of Health.
Note, at this stage, the supply of eye protection is a single distribution rather than an ongoing supply. Eye protection goggles are intended for reuse. GCPHN will consider distribution of two items per worker.
Given the diverse nature of the Allied Health sector and the limited supplies available, Primary Health Network (PHNs) have been given the role of distributing eye protection goggles to allied health professionals with a demonstrated need, for example:
local transmission patterns of COVID-19 and local public health recommendations for eye protection in clinical settings
where there is no alternative commercial supply available and lack of eye protection is preventing practices from reviewing patients face to face when required
the extent to which the allied health professional can manipulate their environment or practice method to minimise the chance of transmission. For example, due to the nature of their work, it’s not easy for a diagnostic radiographer to change their mode of practice or environment. A dietitian or psychologist may be able to continue to provide services through telehealth.
Eye protection distributed through PHNs cannot be sold as commercial stock.
