Welcome to Healthlink Family Medical Centre

We are pleased to announce the launch of GP Telehealth consultations.

You can book a Telehealth appointment with Dr Amit Patel for the following services:

  • Results
  • Repeat Prescriptions (No schedule 8 drugs will be prescribed)
  • Medical Certificates
  • Referrals

We use the Healthdirect Video Call Platform supported by the Australian Government Department of Health and most State Governments.  It is used by hundreds of clinics around Australia.

How it Works:

  1. Call Healthlink reception to make an appointment and make payment.
  2. Go to the clinic link below at the time of your appointment. This will take you to a virtual waiting room.  You will need to enter your name to identify that you are waiting.  You can use a smartphone, laptop with webcam or tablet.
  3. Your prescription, referral, certificate will be emailed/faxed.

How much it costs:

Medicare introduced a Telehealth rebate on 1st November 2019.  You are required to live in a remote area and have seen Dr Patel three times in the last 12 months to be eligible for the rebate.  If you are eligible for the rebate you will be bulk billed.

If you do not meet the Medicare criteria there will be a consultation fee of $49 which will be payable at the time of booking the appointment.

At present this service is only available to patients who have attended Healthlink at least once before.

We will update the service at regular intervals and plan to offer more and open to more patients in future.
