Oncology North Coast is committed to providing consulting and treatment services to cancer patients in rural and remote areas. A telehealth consultation can be conducted between you, your patient, and the oncologist.
This service can help reduce some of the barriers commonly experienced by rural and remote patients in accessing specialist care such as time, travel, and cost. While telehealth is not designed to replace initial face to face consultations, it can be used to enhance and simplify ongoing oncology services to patients whose access might otherwise be limited.
To arrange a telehealth appointment, contact Oncology North Coast on 02 6622 1865. Dr Adam Boyce, Dr James Bull, Dr Amy Scott, and Dr Joe Gormally all offer telehealth consultations.
