for Telehealth


Telehealth involves the use of a digital device (computer, tablet) or phone (mobile or landline) to provide healthcare services to you, from the comfort of your own home and without the need to travel. It is particularly useful for people living in rural and remote locations where specialist health services are not readily accessible, and those living with disability or mobility issues.

This page provides a general overview of how physiotherapy telehealth works. Each clinic will have its own preferred mode of delivery. Please check with your physiotherapist if you would like further information on how they manage their telehealth appointments.
