Why am I moving to telehealth?

Our healthcare system has made changes to adapt to COVID-19 and these mean that many appointments have moved to telehealth. Telehealth supports the governments self-isolation and quarantine policy, while still enabling people to access essential health services in their home.


While you might feel anxious or uncertain about the changes, this move is designed to protect you, without compromising your treatment. It is important to continue your medical treatment and your regular care even during COVID-19.


If you are feeling anxious or concerned, talk to your treating team about what the telehealth changes will mean for you. Cancer Council have developed a blog post to help you get the most out of your telehealth appointment. It is also important to note that face to face appointments may still be available, and needed in some circumstances, so it is important to speak with your doctor about your options.
