Bathurst Hospital Telehealth
Telehealth is a secure and easy way to connect with a health professional. It is done via videoconference over the internet.
We know that when you live outside of the big cities and towns, looking after you health can be a challenge. Long distances to travel to get care, longer waiting times to see health specialists plus leaving your family and friends – sometimes overnight – all add to the pressure when you’re not well.
Telehealth helps to remove the stress of living well. It uses technology we use in our everyday lives to help us look after our health more easily.
Telehealth doesn’t replace face-to-face consultations – it works to support them and at the same time means less travel and less stress on your family and carers. It’s a real breakthrough for rural and remote healthcare.
