Telehealth is a consultation conducted between a psychiatrist or psychologist and a patient using a video conferencing platform over the internet. It is a fairly easy process where all you need is a reasonably fast internet connection, your mobile phone, tablet or computer and a referral letter from your GP to start the process. Once you register with us through our patient portal system, we will send you a link with detailed information on how to access the video platform called Coviu.
Telehealth is particularly helpful for those living in rural and remote areas and in certain situations where face to face consultations are not possible. It allows people to be more flexible, cost effective and it has shown to be as effective as face to face consultations.
