2. TELEHEALTH CONSULTATION (BULK BILLED)

The World Health Organisation (WHO) has declared COVID-19 a pandemic. Prime Minister Scott Morrison has announced a number of healthcare measures to protect Australians from COVID-19. For people in home isolation or quarantine, as a result of coronavirus, to receive health consultations via the phone or video such as Phone or Skype.

This is a massive action undertaken by Amtan Medical Centres as it goes a long way to ensure the sustainability of our clinic’s service long term and in the interest of our staff and doctors as well. Such measures help us too, to reduce our vulnerability and risk during such a crisis in the health industry.
