HAVE you or someone in your care, had a consultation with a health service over the phone or video in the last three months?
The COVID-19 pandemic has seen patients of all ages take advantage of the recently introduced remote or 'virtual' appointments to help witÍh accessing doctors and other health providers.
We would like to know if you think that video and phone appointments have a place beyond COVID-19, especially for people who live a long way from health services and/or for certain appointments where you don't need to be physically seen by your doctor or health care provider.
Bulk-billed or subsidised phone and video consultations are mostly only available until the end of September. We'd love to hear what you think about having these 'virtual' appointments as a longer-term option.
Our confidential short survey with your feedback could help shape the future.
