Can I ask for a face-to-face appointment if I don’t want to have a telehealth appointment?
You don’t have to accept a telehealth appointment, however, at the moment they are being recommended to reduce the risk of exposure of coronavirus to patients and doctors. Your individual circumstance and the situation that your health professional is in will influence this decision.
Having appointments by telehealth means you don’t have to attend a hospital or clinic, where you may be exposed to COVID-19. Reducing your risk of being exposed is particularly important if your immune system has been affected by your cancer or treatment.
Cancer Council NSW would like to acknowledge the traditional custodians of the land on which we live and work.We would also like to pay respect to elders past and present and extend that respect to all other Aboriginal people.
