What is Telehealth?

To watch a video on what Telehealth is, click here

Telehealth is a consultation between a patient and a specialist, and will include the use of an audio and video connection via your computer, mobile phone or tablet. Family members or other health professionals, including your local General Practitioner, may also be involved in the Telehealth consultation. 

If you live in the Loddon Mallee region, have difficulty getting to your appointment with Bendigo Health, and live more than 15 kilometers from your closest specialist, a telehealth consultation with your Bendigo Health specialist may be a suitable option for you. 

Telehealth may not be suitable for all patients or appointments; your specialist may recommend and offer a Telehealth consultation if appropriate.

If you would like to know more about what you need to participate in a Telehealth consultation with your Specialist, Preparing for you Telehealth appointment.
