Telehealth Services Expanded

The government announced yesterday that all vulnerable GPs – who are currently authorised to use telehealth item numbers – will be able to use telehealth for all consultations with all their patients. This includes those GPs who are:
  • aged at least 70 years old
  • Indigenous and aged at least 50 years old
  • pregnant
  • a parent of a child under 12 months
  • immune compromised
  • have a chronic medical condition that results in increased risk from coronavirus infection
