Doctors are unable to examine a patient and come to conclusions in certain conditions and treatment can only be based on symptoms.
Limitations of a Telehealth phone consultation:
1. Our doctors are unable to prescribe sleeping tablets, pain medications or any other medications where there are high chances of abuse. You will need to see your regular GP for these as they are monitored by your doctor.
2. We 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 .
3. Mental Health Care Plans cannot be done on a phone consultation.
If you are unwell and have not improved after a Telehealth phone consultation then you should book a face to face appointment.
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.
Accreditation is an integral part of safe and quality general practice in Australia. It is independent recognition that practices meet the requirements of the governing national industry Standards, set by the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners (RACGP). Accreditation means a practice is meeting minimum safety and quality standards.
It is for general practices of all kinds who are recognised for their commitment to safety, quality and continuous improvements. This includes general practices, medical centers, medical practices, GP clinics and healthcare clinics. It also includes other services such as Aboriginal Medical Services, medical deputising services, after hours services and the Royal Flying Doctor Service (RFDS).
By undergoing independent assessment, the award of accreditation reassures practice owners, practice managers, staff, funding bodies, consumers and patients that the practice is meeting minimum safety and quality standards, as outlined by the RACGP.
