What is Telehealth?

Telehealth aims to make it easier for Australians who have difficulty getting to a healthcare professional (GP, specialist or allied health practitioner), or who live in rural and remote areas, to access healthcare services.

An appointment by video call can happen while you are at home, in a clinic, or in a hospital; and your local or another healthcare professional can attend with you.

Watch the videos below to hear how people in our region use telehealth. For further information about Telehealth and what you need to access services, download the appropriate information sheet:
