• What is it?  Telehealth is the use of technology that enables remote healthcare. Basically it makes it possible for practitioners to treat patients by using a computer or smartphone.

      Telehealth is similar to a face to face appointment, conducted over the telephone or using video chat. It’s easy to use – if you have ever used Skype, Facetime, WhatsApp or Messenger video then you will be able to do this.

What are the benefits?

Telehealth is a good solution to support continuity of care when face to face appointments are not appropriate or convenient.

  • Just as effective as face-to-face visits - For many disciplines, Telehealth has been shown to be just as effective as face-to-face care. Information about your condition can still be gained through discussion and observation.
  • Easy to Use – use your phone or laptop – follow the link provided to you.
  • Keeps you safe – social distancing is important especially for those that are unwell or have compromised immune systems in the current climate
  • Convenient/Saves time – no travel; can be done in the comfort of your own home

What equipment do I need?

  • Phone or laptop (can use a computer if you have a camera/microphone)
  • Appropriate space – private if required for your discussion
