Telehealth FAQs

We have introduced Telehealth as a tool to assist us in delivering healthcare safely during the Coronavirus pandemic. We appreciate this is a little different to what our patients are used to, so we have developed some Frequently Asked Questions to help.

Please – do not neglect your health during this crisis! We are here to help manage all your health concerns safely. 

The Australian Government has introduced Telehealth for all GPs, and for many other health service providers, in order to minimise exposure to Coronavirus. This means that you can have a telephone consultation with your GP rather than need to go into the clinic and risk exposure to the virus.

Your GP can offer the same level of excellent healthcare via Telehealth that you have come to expect from our clinic. Our GP’s are still able to consult for the same medical conditions that they would normally review in person. The difference being you will first speak with your GP on the phone and they can then assess whether you require a face to face consultation. Prescriptions, referral letters, pathology and imaging referrals and medical certificates are still able to be issued, and many can be securely sent to you electronically. 

A vast amount of information can be gathered by speaking with a GP, whether it be via a face to face or telephone consultation. Research has shown that over 80% of diagnoses are made by taking a history from a patient and this can be achieved effectively and efficiently via a telephone consultation, whilst maintaining the same level of patient-centred care.

With this in mind, we of course recognise the limitations of a telephone consultation and that some patients require a review in person. Therefore, if your GP feels further clinical information is required, they will arrange for you to attend our clinic for a face to face assessment.

You will have access to the same caring and dedicated GPs that you are used to, over the phone. We recommend you request your regular doctor, because they will be most familiar with you and your medical history. This helps them to deliver better quality care for you. If you do not have a regular doctor, we have a number of caring and dedicated GPs who will be able to assist.


Coronaviruses are a large family of viruses known to cause respiratory infections.

These can range from the common cold to more serious diseases such as Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS) and Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS).

This new coronavirus originated in Hubei Province, China and the disease caused by the virus is named COVID-19.

The symptoms of COVID-19 are similar to other colds and flus and include: 

  • fever
  • sore throat
  • cough
  • tiredness
  • difficulty breathing

You may also experience

  • headache
  • myalgia
  • runny or stuffy nose
  • anosmia
  • nausea
  • vomiting
  • diarrhoea

COVID-19 is most likely to spread from person-to-person through: 

  • close contact with a person while they are infectious or in the 24 hours before their symptoms appeared
  • close contact with a person with a confirmed infection who coughs or sneezes
  • touching objects or surfaces (such as door handles or tables) contaminated from a cough or sneeze from a person with confirmed infection, and then touching your mouth or face.

When out of your home it is even more important to practise good hand and cough/sneeze hygiene and social distancing.

You should:

  • wash your hands frequently with soap and water for 20 seconds, before and after eating, and after going to the toilet
  • cover your cough and sneeze, dispose of tissues and wash your hands
  • avoid contact with others (stay more than 1.5 metres from people)
  • exercise personal responsibility for social distancing measures.


For a list of current screening centres and the one closest to you please visit the DHHS website.

For information about Isolation please visit the Health website for more information

If a household member is a suspected case, you may need to be isolated. See this page on the Health website for more information.

If you are required to isolate, your must stay at home to avoid the spread of the virus. You might also be asked to stay at home if you may have been exposed to the virus. 

Staying at home means you:

  • do not go to public places such as work, school, shopping centres, childcare or university
  • ask someone to get food and other necessities for you and leave them at your front door
  • do not let visitors in — only people who usually live with you should be in your home

You should stay in touch by phone and on-line with your family and friends.

Social distancing includes ways to stop or slow the spread of infectious diseases. It means less contacts between you and other people.

Social distancing is important because COVID-19 is most likely to spread from person-to-person.

There is no specific treatment for coronaviruses. Antibiotics are not effective against viruses. Most of the symptoms can be treated with supportive medical care.

Practising good hand and sneeze/cough hygiene and keeping your distance from others when you are sick is the best defence against most viruses.

You should:

  • Wash your hands frequently with soap and water
  • Cover your cough and sneeze, dispose of tissues, and use alcohol-based hand sanitiser
  • Wear a mask when you leave home
  • Avoid contact with others (stay more than 1.5 metres from people)
  • Follow up to date public health orders
  • You must get tested and stay at home if you are unwell
  • Exercise personal responsibility for social distancing measures.
