Medico-legal examinations during COVID-19
In response to the current COVID-19 restrictions, SIRA has updated the guidance for medico-legal examinations.
When scheduling a medico-legal examination, the insurer/referrer must consider whether attendance at an appointment is permitted by the public health orders in force at the time.
The current restrictions mean that:
- no face-to-face medico-legal examinations are to proceed in the Greater Sydney region, including for any person whose place of residence or usual place of work is in Greater Sydney
- where a face-to-face medico-legal examination is able to be arranged, (ie not within the Greater Sydney region), the injured person will be required to wear a fitted face covering at all times.
