Would you prefer a telephone or video consultation?
In order to reduce the risk of people being exposed to others who may have flu or a cold, there is the option of having a telephone or telehealth consultation.
Certain categories of people are eligible for a medicare rebated telephone or telehealth (video) consultation for any reason. These are:
- People who are at high risk of having been exposed to COVID-19 as per the Queensland Health guidelines;
- People aged over 70;
- Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people over 50;
- You are pregnant or have had a baby in the last 12 months;
- If you have a chronic health condition such as diabetes, heart disease or severe mental ill health;
- If you have any condition or on any medication that suppresses your immune system
If do not fit any of these categories, you are still able to choose a telephone or video consult. This will incur a charge of $40 for a short appointment and $80 for a long appointment.
If you would like one of these appointments, please phone (07) 4781 4495, or book via our online booking system.
