SKYPE PSYCHIATRY CONSULTATIONS FOR THOSE AFFECTED BY CORONA VIRUS
COVID-19 outbreak is having a great impact on people’s wellbeing, not only physically but emotionally. Isolation and uncertainty can be daunting. Our response to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) has been carefully structured and optimised to benefit both our staff and patients. Our hearts go out to all those affected by the COVID-19 virus. Mindoc is now introducing Bulk-billed video consultation services provided by our psychiatrists via Skype. Our staff will continue to provide their specialist health services to all patients both face to face and via an optional Tele-Psych platform.
Unfortunately, there are some exceptions to our Tele-psych services which are listed below:
- Patients must be in isolation or home quarantined.
- We are unable to see non-english speaking patients as interpreter services cannot provided via Skype
- To be eligible for bulk-billing, all patients must have a valid Medicare card
