TasOGS has brought a new and exciting concept in Obstetric and Gynaecology care to the beautiful city of Hobart.
TasOGS is Tasmania’s first all female, group O&G practice. The practice consists of Dr Kirsten Connan, Dr Tania Hingston and Dr Emily Price, who together provide 24 hour specialist care for their patients.
Many practices have covering arrangements with other obstetricians. This can result in you having an unfamiliar face at the birth of your baby.
With our new and unique practice model, TasOGS aims to ensure that throughout your pregnancy you will be cared for by your primary obstetrician and when possible your obstetrician will also be at your birth.
We will arrange for you to also meet with our other obstetricians in the TasOGS practice throughout your antenatal care. This ensures that you always have a trusted and familiar face providing care during your pregnancy and birth. We believe that this is an invaluable feature of our practice.
Our doctors share the on-call roster at TasOGS. This ensures that you have a well-rested and safe obstetrician as well as someone familiar and experienced providing 24 hour support during your pregnancy and birth.
You will require a referral from your GP if you wish to claim the Medicare or Private Health Insurance Rebate. The referral from your GP will last twelve months. Referrals from another specialist last three months. Our practice will correspond with your family GP or referring doctor after your visit.
Your gynaecology care will be provided by your primary gynaecologist at TasOGS. In the event that your gynaecologist is away or you require emergency care when your gynaecologist is not available, the on-call TasOGS gynaecologist can provide you with care.
You will require a referral from your GP if you wish to claim the Medicare Rebate. The referral from your GP will last twelve months. Referrals from another specialist last three months. Correspondence is sent to your referring doctor after your visit.
