Telehealth

Telehealth is a secure and easy way of connecting with a health professional through the use of video technology.

  • It allows you to access services from home, hospital or a community centre, virtually.
  • It reduces the need for travel while still providing high quality care
  • It is changing the way we provide our services to you

In case of an emergency, please call 000.

How will our Telehealth Service help you?

We know that when you live outside of the big cities and towns, looking after your health can be a challenge. Long distances to travel to get care, longer waiting times to see health specialists plus leaving your family and friends – sometimes overnight – all add to the pressure when you’re not well.

Telehealth helps to remove the stress of living well. It uses technology we use in our everyday lives to help us look after our health more easily.

Telehealth doesn’t replace face-to-face consultations – it works to support them and at the same time means less travel and less stress on your family and carers. It’s a real breakthrough for rural and remote healthcare.

Telehealth support services available

Southern NSW Local Health District are active in rolling out Virtual Care and Telehealth services, and will advise on more of them as they become available.
