At Parkmore Medical Centre, we provide telephone and video telehealth consultation.
It is a legislative requirement that GPs working in general practice can only perform a telehealth service where they have an established clinical relationship with the patient (seen in person in the last 12 months), with limited exemptions (such as Isolation due to COVID-19 illness)
We bulk bill telehealth for Commonwealth concession card holders and children under 16 years of age during the weekdays.
There’s might a fee for the telehealth consultation, the fee is the same as a consultation in the clinic.
We can send prescriptions electronically (eScript) to you through SMS, Email or directly to your pharmacy. We can also email you pathology request, radiology request, specialist referral or a medical certificate.
For video consultation, please follow this Link
Soon, to fulfil requirement from Service Australia, everyone would need an email address to have a telehealth consultation. Please update your email address with reception or get one if you haven’t got one.
