Hale Road Medical was established in mid 2015 with one doctor and we have grown from strength to strength since .We have been providing general practice services to the local community from infants to the elderly age group.
Hale Road Medical started providing telehealth services since the beginning of Covid-19 pandemic and now we have extended our telehealth services to beyond the local community and NOW Australia wide.
Telehealth does have its limitations as our doctors are unable to examine you You will still need to visit your regular General Practice Surgery if you are feeling unwell despite having a telephone consult and there have been no improvement to your health or illness.
Please note our doctors are unable to prescribe sleeping tablets or pain medications and any form of opioid medications. You will need to see your regular GP for these. Our doctors are unable to consult on any skin condition which is related to sun damage or skin cancer as for these you will need a close up examination by your GP or dermatologist .
These are non Medicare rebateable and are privately paid prior to consult when you make a doctors booking.
Under current COVID-19 health measures, only GP Clinics that have seen a patient face to face within the past 12 months are now eligible to claim Medicare for a telehealth consult.
