How telehealth doctors’ service works at National Telemedicine Doctors
“National Telemedicine Doctors” is as an online general medical platform to facilitate the treatment of patients by independent General Medical Practitioners and other health practitioners registered in Australia, who provide medical and healthcare services remotely via a secure video and/or audio consultation. These practitioners use the National Telemedicine Doctors web-based service to offer medical consultations to patients without an in-person consultation which does not include a physical examination.
At National Telemedicine Doctors, online doctor’s service simply means accessing clinical services from a qualified doctor using electronic communications and software, without actually visiting the doctor yourself in person. Our online medical services allow health care professionals to evaluate, diagnose and treat patients without a face-to face meeting. Telehealth/online doctor’s service is now frequently used for general medical consultations, follow-up visits, management of chronic conditions, medication management, specialist consultations and a host of other clinical services that can be provided remotely via secure video and/or audio.
Where it was once only available in limited circumstances from a few practitioners, telehealth/online doctor’s service has now evolved and become a widely-accepted mainstream way for you to access medical and health care.
Using National Telemedicine Doctor’s telehealth/online doctor platform, you can now consult an Australian Medical Board-certified doctor/GP in the comfort of our own home or office. Of course a face-to-face consultation with your regular GP is the ideal consultation, however a consultation with National Telemedicine Doctors is an effective and convenient alternative, when a face-to-face consultation is not possible. During your consultation your National Telemedicine Doctor/health practitioner will advise you if an in-person visit to a health practitioner is required.

Do I need a referral for a Specialist/Allied Health Practitioner?
Any General Practitioner at National Telemedicine Doctors can write a referral for you if you need a referral to a specialist/allied Health practitioner. You may need a referral to see a registered specialist or health practitioner – if you take services of a specialist/allied Health practitioner without a referral, Medicare will not cover any of your costs.
