General and Upper Gastrointestinal Surgeon


Consultant Surgeon

Coronavirus and elective operating

Dr Hamer’s rooms remain open.  


Private hospital operations:   Back to normal.

The public hospital system is back to normal with elective surgery, but waiting lists are still behind due to the backlog formed during COVID.


We are offering some patients who are suitable phone consultations in order to minimise the number of people in the waiting room at any one time, to aid social distancing.  We are asking family members to stay out of our clinic rooms to reduce congestion and aid social distancing.  We are following guidelines including asking people to wear a mask in the rooms and undergo RAT tests if not vaccinated.
