Telemedicine

Telemedicine is a new technology which connects patients in rural areas to the specialized healthcare they need without having to leave their community. Telemedicine reduces the time, cost and stress associated with travelling for healthcare. A telemedicine appointment is just like a regular doctor’s appointment; except the specialist you will be seeing and speaking with will be displayed on the monitor. With the assistance of a nurse and advances in technology it is possible for a specialist to hear heart and breath sounds and see into a patient’s ears, nose and throat. Some of the telemedicine programs available through the East Wellington Family Health Team include:

  • Respirology
  • Dermatology
  • Child and Adolescent Mental Health
  • Geriatric Mental Health
  • Chronic Pain Clinics
  • Osteoporosis Clinics
