What if I have an upcoming medical assessment?

DRS will contact injured people who have upcoming medical assessments to confirm whether it is appropriate and safe to attend the assessment. Where appropriate, medical assessors and review panel members will avoid in-person contact by assessing matters based on the papers or via video conference. Where circumstances allow, DRS will determine whether an in-person assessment should proceed.

DRS has asked medical decision makers to follow the advice of the Australian Government Department of Health and NSW Health in relation to the prevention of the possible spread of COVID-19.
