Telemedicine

Our physicians offer telemedicine via skype to patients in rural and remote areas where specialist care is limited.

These consultations are organised through Norwood Specialist Clinic and the patient's GP clinic, where an appointment is made with the GP's practice nurse who accompanies the patient during the consult to provide clinical support (ie, height, weight etc) to the physician.

While telemedicine has its limitations it can be a great opportunity for patients to meet the physician and discuss treatment options without the expense of travelling for the initial consultation. Patients may need to travel to metro areas for some treatments but telemedicine gives the physician and their team the opportunity to organise as many of the required tests, treatment, hospital admissions (etc) within a trip, avoiding unnecessary travel .
